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.
