The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on Tuesday released a report that analyzed more than 2,300 private student loan complaints and more than 1,300 debt collection complaints related to student loan debt that were submitted between October 1, 2013, and March 31, 2014. With more than 90 percent of new private student loans co-signed, often by a parent or grandparent, the report highlights the issues borrowers face when their co-signers die and when they want to release a co-signer. Among the issues consumers face are auto-defaults when a co-signer dies; auto-defaults when a co-signers enters bankruptcy; and obstacles to releasing co-signers from the loan. Borrowers said they regularly encountered these problems even though their loans are current and being paid on time. As a result, the CFPB has issued a consumer advisory to borrowers about how to release their co-signers from their loans. The advisory includes "instructions that consumers can edit and send to their student loan servicer." For more, including the advisory, read the full news release.
