SGT represents over 20 individuals whose sensitive personal information--including social security numbers--was compromised when student loan servicing company Nelnet allowed an unauthorized third-party to access and obtain its customers' sensitive information. 

Nelnet is a Nebraska-based student loan servicing company that serves as a student loan servicer and web portal provider for EdFinancial and the Oklahoma Student Loan Authority (OSLA). On August 26, 2022, EdFinancial and OSLA began notifying over 2.5 million of their customers that that their sensitive personal information—including social security numbers, full names, physical addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers—had been exposed as a result of unauthorized access to Nelnet's computer systems. According to a letter filed with the Maine Attorney General, Nelnet "discovered a vulnerability [Nelnet] believes led to . . .certain student loan account registration information [being] accessible by an unknown party beginning in June 2022 and ending on July 22, 2022."

Individuals across the country have reported negative credit events since the hack occurred. If you received a notice from Nelnet, EdFinancial, or OSLA and wish to learn more about the litigation, contact SGT today.
