Navient Receives Approval to Transfer Department of Education Servicing Contract to Maximus


WILMINGTON, DE — Navient (Nasdaq: NAVI) announced this week that its proposal to transfer the loan servicing of 5.6 million Department of Education-owned student loan accounts to Maximus has received all necessary approvals. Effective today, Maximus replaces Navient as contractor to the Department of Education.

Navient and Maximus are focused on continuing to provide high-quality service to borrowers as they transition to Maximus’s servicing division, Aidvantage, by year end, after a series of communications to borrowers. The loans will remain on the same student loan servicing technology platform, owned by Fiserv, and about 800 Navient employees who had previously worked on the Department of Education loan servicing team will transfer to Maximus.
