What do borrowers say about Launch Servicing?
Nothing, as of February 2019. So far nobody has filed a complaint against the servicer with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). It also doesn’t have a Better Business Bureau or Trustpilot page. Even Reddit is silent when it comes to mentions of Launch.
This isn’t all that surprising, given the company was founded just a year ago. And it’s not necessarily good or bad — it could simply mean it serves a small group or that its customers are satisfied enough to avoid complaining. But it makes it more difficult to tell what kind of experience you can expect if you refinance with a lender like Connext that uses this servicer.
What to expect with other student loan servicers
Launch Servicing is one of the more user-friendly servicers out there, with an easy-to-navigate website and mobile app that allows you to make repayments with a few taps. But with such little information online about customer experiences, it’s difficult to tell what to watch out for.
If you’re unhappy with your experience, consider refinancing with another lender that works with a different servicer. You can find out how it compares to other companies by reading our guide to student loan servicing.
Frequently asked questions
How do I apply for deferment or forbearance with Launch Servicing?
You can find out if you’re eligible for deferment or forbearance by contacting customer service — the quickest way is to call. If you’re going back to school or facing financial hardship, you might qualify to put your repayments on hold.
How do I change my repayment plan with Launch Servicing?
It depends on your lender. Typically with private student loans, the only way to change your repayment plan is to refinance with another provider. You usually need to have good credit and a low debt-to-income ratio to qualify for a better deal with a private lender.
Is Launch Servicing the same as ReliaMax?
No, Launch Servicing is a separate student loan servicer. However, when ReliaMax stopped servicing student loans, Launch Servicing took over its accounts. So if you formerly had a loan that you were repaying through ReliaMax, Launch Servicing is now your servicer.
