College Funding Resources and Information This is the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and it would be the place to go if you have a complaint about your loan servicer or a company that promised to help you with your loans. The official U.S. Department of Education website KHEAA is the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority and is a state agency. In addition to information about loan repayment, it provides information about financial literacy. The National Foundation for Credit Counseling ("nominal" fees may apply) Great Lakes services federal loans. If Great Lakes is your loan servicer, this is probably a good place to seek help. (Other servicers include Navient, Nelnet, MOHELA, and PHEAA. Navient was formerly part of Sallie Mae and has been sued by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the attorney general of Illinois. MOHELA [Missouri] and PHEAA [Pennsylvania] are those state’s counterparts to KHEAA.) Run by Mark Kantrowitz, who is an expert called by many reputable news organizations for comments about financial aid.
