I called FedEd on Monday to figure out why they were saying I was now almost 2 weeks late making my payment when I was enrolled in their direct debit program. I was told that the guy who assured me repeatedly that I was all set up was basically talking out his ass. The guy on Monday told me there was around a month delay (which I knew but again was assured that I was set to go. So if I would go ahead and make my payment online, it would no longer show "delinquent".

He was right. It no longer shows delinquent. It now shows I'm in forbearance. Right next to my "Payment due $0.00". And it even shows that I made a payment on Monday.

I could scream. Or cry.
