I want to know has anyone had a lender pick up their loan after the 9th payment was completed. My 9th payment was completed the beginning of March and still no lender,.. I would like to know since jan of 2012 how long did it take for a lender to pick up ur student loan.

Thanks for the reply. My husband is paying his last and final payment Nov. 1 and we are looking forward to putting this mess behind us. I have heard that getting the loans picked up again can stall the "default" status change on credit reports and Dept. of Ed. Hopefully his will go as smoothly as yours. Thanks again.

Well, I'm not entirely out of the woods. I got picked up fast, but there are multiple stories of people who wait, often for some time, for the changes to reflect on their credit reports. Or the new tradelines get reported but the old ones aren't always removed. Or they remove part of the negative info but not all. Lots of pitfalls.
My servicer reports to the CRA's on the 22nd, so will keep you posted on what happens.

I would like to know the same thing.
I just completed rehab and sent a GW to the company that currently holds my loans and they sent me this:
Thank you for contacting American Student Assistance® (ASA).
I reviewed your account and found the Loan Rehabilitation program for your federal Consolidation loan currently held by ASA® is due to be completed this month. As such, ASA® your guarantor, will ask your previous loan holder and consumer reporting agencies, (Equifax, TransUnion, and Experian), to remove the default entry from your credit report; It may take up to 90 days after the loan is sold for the default to be removed from your credit history.
I hope this information is helpful to you."
Does this mean they are selling my loan to someone else, but removing the negative marks on my credit report?

Yes, your loan will now be picked up by a new lender. The default notation will come off your credit report, but most of the time the lates that led up to the default remain on your report until the 7.5 year CTRP is up. So there may be some negative marks remaining, but the default is the big kahuna and that should be removed.

I waited 4 months to get picked up...my wife went less than 1 month....
We both started rehab literally the same month.

I believe so.
I don't think it has anything to do the collection servicer.
Hers was a much larger amount than mine so I think it appealed more than mine. Mine was under 9k hers was over 25k.
