Navient statement on the FAIR Student Credit Act
WILMINGTON, Del., May 12, 2015-Navient issued the following statement on the Federal Adjustment in Reporting (FAIR) Student Credit Act introduced today by U.S. Senators Gary Peters (MI) and Shelley Moore Capito (WV).
"The FAIR Student Credit Act is an important reform that gives student loan borrowers a second chance," said Jack Remondi, president and CEO, Navient. "Navient applauds the sponsors for their bipartisan leadership to create a pathway to help private education loan borrowers get back on track to manage their payments successfully, improve their credit report, and enhance their financial outlook for the future."
