I need some feedback on this Goodwill letter I am about to send to my student loans. I have combined a few of the goodwill letters from here.
To Whom It May Concern:
From 2003 until 2004, I attended High Tech Institute. I graduated with Associate’s degrees in Medical Assisting. I am extremely grateful to SLFC for providing me the financial means to earn my degree.
The reason that I am writing is to see if you would be willing to make a "goodwill" adjustment to your reporting to Transunion, Equifax and Experian credit reporting agencies with regard to account number 99999549*** (this partial account number was pulled directly from my Experian credit report). I have late payments on the above referenced account that date back to 2006 and 2007. At the time of the late payments, I was in a period of unemployment. This period of unemployment necessitated my two-year hiatus from school and put my loan into repayment status, which is why the late payments occurred. I also gave birth to my child. I was not educated on the fact that I could put the loans in deferment due to financial hardship. At that time my loans went into default but I was able to rehab them back into good standing. I say that not to justify why the payments were late, but rather to show that the late payments are not a good indicator of my actual credit worthiness.
I will soon be applying for a mortgage and your removal of these late payments would assist me in receiving the lowest interest rate available. I am requesting that you give me a second chance at a positive credit rating by revising those tradelines. Your customer service representative suggested that I write you for a "goodwill adjustment." I hope that SLFC is willing to work with me on erasing these marks from my credit reports. I know that you have assisted people that have defaulted on their students loans by removing the default notation from their credit histories and I think that is wonderful. I sincerely hope that there is redemption at SLFC, and I beg you for such consideration. Please let me know if any additional documentation would assist in reaching a positive outcome, and I thank you again for the time you have spent reading this letter
