What is a Servicer?
A servicer is the agency or organization responsible for billing, collection and management of loan repayment, and deferment/forbearance processing. You will send loan payments directly to your servicer(s).
Your servicer(s) will contact you to provide important information about your repayment terms. It is your responsibility to notify your servicer(s) directly any time your phone number, email address, or mailing address information changes.
Your servicer(s) will send you information about your loans by mail and/or email - Be sure to open and read it!
