Is Usdoe/Glelsi hurting your credit score?

Lexington Law has helped millions of customers remove collections and other negative items from their credit reports. Let them help you too!

Who is Usdoe/Glelsi?

Usdoe/Glelsi, which stands for U.S. Department of Education/Great Lakes Educational Loan Services, Inc., is a nonprofit student loan servicer and guarantor located in Madison, Wisconsin. They have relaunched as Ascendium Education Group.

You may see them listed on your credit report as a collections account. This can happen if you have defaulted on a federal student loan.

Removing Usdoe/Glelsi from Your Credit Report

Usdoe/Glelsi collections can hurt your credit score and remain on your credit report for up to 7 years regardless of whether you pay it or not. Unfortunately, paying the collection could even lower your credit score.

However, it is possible to have a collection account removed from your credit report before 7 years.

(Debt collectors prefer that we didn’t tell you this, but it’s something you should know.)

Lexington Law is a credit repair company that helps people fix their credit.

In addition to collections, Lexington Law will help you challenge (and possibly remove) other inaccurate information from your credit report. These items include inquiries, late payments, charge-offs, foreclosures, repossessions, judgments, liens, student loans, and bankruptcies.

Should I contact or pay Great Lakes?

Nothing good can come from speaking to a collection agency on the phone. And making payments on the collection account will reset the clock. So instead of helping your credit, it could make it worse.

The best way to go about handling this is to work with a professional credit repair service. They have deleted millions of negative items from companies like Usdoe/Glelsi for millions of clients nationwide.

And they can help you too.

Will Great Lakes sue me or garnish my wages?

It’s possible, but if you work with a law firm like Lexington Law, you have nothing to worry about. They will help you dispute the collection account and possibly get it removed from your credit report. It’s also quite possible that you will never hear from or have to deal with Usdoe/Glelsi again.

Call Lexington Law to learn how they can help you avoid lawsuits and remove negative items from your credit report that will significantly improve your credit scores.
