This is a day of my life that I won’t ever get back. I need a stiff drink!!!
Well, to explain, I checked that my student loan was all paid up, as it should have been by now, and discovered that SLC had stopped taking payments from me…in 2012.
No one told me this and yes I should have been more aware…
They sold my loan and apparently I still owe £1800. No one can say why they stopped taking my money and I was none the wiser after numerous calls to various agencies who haven’t shared all the information about this debt.
Been to the bank to see if they could shed any light. No such luck. Queued for an age, waiting to see an IMpersonal “banker”. When I asked how long it would be, I was answered with, “how long is a piece of string?!” RUDE!
Been calling SLC and the new loan company, Erudio. It’s literally taken all day. I’ve never known such incompetence – besides the tax man that is. That’s a job for tomorrow. Let’s see if they have received and recorded receipt of my 3rd recorded delivery letter or whether that has been lost as well.
Is life just a tedious trial of negotiating through incompetence until one is old and incontinent? What’s it all about?
