Retroactive Forbearance - Late Payments Removal?

Recommended Posts

I have a small federal consolidation loan with NAVIENT.  Back in 2013 I had lost my job and payments became late for three months before I could get the retroactive forbearance approved in October of 2013.  Currently NAVIENT is reporting me late for July, August, and September of 2013 for 90, 120, and 120 respectively.  I have filed disputes with the credit reporting agencies, asked for a goodwill removal, requested removal due to retroactive forbearance, and filed a complaint with the CFPB.


All of this has not gotten me anywhere.  I have contacted some attorneys but they don't want to take the case because it is a retroactive forbearance .  I have a couple of questions:


1)  What else can I do to get these late payments removed from my credit files?

2)  Should I just wait until they fall off next year?

3)  Has anyone here had any luck getting lates removed?  If yes, how did you go about it?


I saw another thread on here about this but there seems to be conflicting information about the FCRA and HEA and how its interpreted by the courts.  Thanks in advance for your help.

Welcome to Creditboards!

We hope that you find what you're looking for here.

Some helpful tips:

  • Your post may not get a reply right away. Don't be discouraged, this is a very busy board. If it falls off of the first page, feel free to reply to your post yourself, with the word *bump* in the text. This will *bump* your post back up to the top of the board.
  • If you haven't yet, take a peek at out Newbies Section. Everything that you need to know is in that forum, for the most part. It's a lot of reading, we know, but this credit stuff can have a steep learning curve. In no time, you'll be posting like the pros!
  • If you find that someone is discourteous to you, use the REPORT button at the top right of every post - that will ensure that a moderator or admin looks at the post and decides if it is against the TOS.
  • Off -topic posts should go in the General Forum.


Again, welcome to the CreditBoards family!
