States’ Vehicle Asset Policies in SNAP

Because of the outdated nature of the SNAP Policies, new legislation allows for States to create their own policies. There has been a strong effort to re-structure vehicle policies.

States are now allowed to use SNAP with the method for valuing vehicles that the state has established under a TANF/MOE-funded cash or non-cash assistance program so long as it is not more restrictive than federal SNAP rules.

Alternatively, states may employ in SNAP the vehicle asset rule from a TANF/MOE-funded benefit or service program for households that are authorized to receive that TANF/MOE benefit. Under the SNAP, households that receive TANF/MOE-funded benefits are categorically eligible for SNAP benefits and do not have to meet the SNAP asset test in order to receive benefits. In some states, all food stamp households are eligible for the TANF/MOE-funded benefit program. In others, only a small number of households are eligible for the services. For households that do not receive such benefits, the state must apply an alternative vehicle policy. They may use federal SNAP rules or import the rule from a TANF/MOE-funded assistance program.

These new policy options have given states that ability to craft vehicle asset rules in SNAP that work best for them. It also gives states the ability to make the rules consistent with other programs, such as TANF and Medicaid, ensuring that the SNAP rules do not work against other programs’ goals.

Illinois AG alleges fraud at Navient, country s largest student loan company

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is alleging the country’s largest student lender of “widespread abuses” and “loans designed to fail.” The attorney general’s office is alleging Navient and Sallie Mae had no business handing out risky, high interest loans to students who didn’t have the means to pay them back

“Navient and Sallie Mae engaged in aggressive sub-prime lending,” Madigan said. “It’s clear that Sallie Mae and Navient have failed millions of our country’s student borrowers.”

Madigan announced the lawsuit Wednesday against the nation’s largest loan company Navient, Sallie May, its predecessor and two subsidiaries for abuses in its student lending, loan servicing and debt collection businesses. Madigan said tens of thousands of Illinois students were negatively affected and now are on the hook for those questionable loans.

“We have an unprecedented level of student loan debt in our country which has negatively impacted the economy. In spite of encouraging borrowers to call Navient for help when they were struggling to pay their student loans, Navient repeatedly failed to tell those borrowers about affordable repayment plan that were available to them,” Madigan said.

MORE: Student loan help hotline 1-800-455-2456

Madigan said Navient and Sallie Mae Bank failed to perform their core duties. When students defaulted on their loans, Madigan alleges Navient and its companies engaged in deceptive collection practices.

The lawsuit alleges Sallie Mae worked hand-in-hand with many for-profit schools to get those loans. The ABC 7 I-Team first uncovered allegations of for-profit college students being misled in 2015.

“Navient saddled students with expensive and risky subprime loans that they designed to fail. Sallie Mae’s unfair and deceptive sub-prime loans carried very high interest rates and fees and not surprisingly were given to students at the worst schools, poorly accredited for-profits,” Madigan said.

Navient said in a statement about the AG’s lawsuit and a similar federal lawsuit filed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau: “The allegations. are unfounded, and the timing of these lawsuits-midnight action filed on the eve of a new administration-reflects their political motivations. We will vigorously defend against these false allegations and continue to help our customers achieve financial success.”

The lawsuit seeks restitution to all Illinois Navient borrowers affected by the company’s alleged practices. The lawsuit wants the company to cancel or change contracts.

The Illinois attorney general has set up a student loan help hotline at 1-800-455-2456 .

FULL STATEMENT FROM NAVIENT
The allegations of the Illinois Attorney General and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau are unfounded, and the timing of these lawsuits-midnight action filed on the eve of a new administration-reflects their political motivations. Navient welcomes clear and well-designed guidelines that all parties can follow, and we had hoped our extensive engagement with the regulators would achieve this objective. Instead, the suits improperly seek to impose penalties on Navient based on new servicing standards applied retroactively and applied only against one servicer. The regulator-asserted standards are inconsistent with Department of Education regulations, and will harm student loan borrowers, including through higher defaults.

Navient has a well-established, superior track-record of helping student loan borrowers succeed in repayment.

49 percent of loan balances serviced by Navient for the federal government are enrolled in income-driven repayment plans. Assertions that we do not educate borrowers about IDR plans ignore the facts.

Navient is a leader in advancing policy recommendations to streamline enrollment and reenrollment in income-driven plans-reforms which we believe would make a meaningful difference for millions of Americans with student loans.

Federal borrowers serviced by Navient are 31 percent less likely to default than their peers at other servicers. Private loan delinquencies and defaults are at among historic lows.

In 2009, Navient pioneered the first private education loan modification program. The program was designed to help customers stay current on their loans and, unlike federal program solutions, make progress on repaying their principal balance. Today, more than $2 billion in loan balances are enrolled in these programs.

Navient has a responsibility to its customers, shareholders, and employees to defend itself-publicly and in court-against this unsubstantiated, unjustified and politically driven action. We cannot and will not accept agenda-driven ultimatums designed to get headlines rather than help for student borrowers. We will vigorously defend against these false allegations and continue to help our customers achieve financial success.

Navient has posted additional information at navient.com/facts.

FULL STATEMENT FROM SALLIE MAE
Today the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau filed a complaint in federal court in Pennsylvania against Navient Corporation, along with its subsidiaries, Navient Solutions, Inc. and Pioneer Credit Recovery, Inc. The complaint alleges these Navient entities, among other things, engaged in deceptive practices with respect to its historic servicing and debt collection practices. Neither SLM Corporation,

Sallie Mae Bank, nor any of their current subsidiaries are named in, or otherwise a party to, the lawsuit and are not alleged to have engaged in any wrongdoing.

Additionally, a press release issued today by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan announced the filing of a separate lawsuit against Navient Corporation – its subsidiaries Navient Solutions, Inc. Pioneer Credit Recovery, Inc. and General Revenue Corporation – and Sallie Mae Bank arising out of a multi-state investigation of various lending, servicing, and collection practices. As SLM Corporation has consistently disclosed in its periodic reports, Navient has accepted responsibility for all costs, expenses, losses and remediation arising from this matter.

On April 30, 2014, SLM Corporation and Navient Corporation separated into two, independent companies. Since that time, SLM Corporation’s business consists of providing high-quality private education loans and saving products.

The United States Of Used Cars

The United States of Used Cars v2

There are more than 250 million used cars on the road in the United States and every year, close to 40 million of those used cars change hands. Used-car sales volumes typically dwarf new-car sales. But how does the fleet of used cars for sale look in different parts of the country? We analyzed our database of more than 3 million current classifieds from different providers plus outside data sources to create this snapshot–the United States of Used Cars.

New versus used: While the new-car market is averaging about 14 million units over the past five years (and is on pace for 16 million sales this year, based on recent volumes), the used-car market towers above it, with roughly 40 million cars sold each year. Of those, many are sold by private parties, but a sizable percentage are sold through some of the 45,000 independent used-car dealerships–or sold as certified pre-owned vehicles through the nearly 18,000 new-car dealers in the U.S.

Used-car prices: In our snapshot, the average list price of a used car is $19,741.44. By state, you may find better bargains in Michigan, where the average price is lowest, at $16,489.

Where you’ll find the oldest–and newest–used cars: The average car on America’s roads today is more than 11 years old. When it comes time to buy a used car, that becomes an important fact, since used-car ages and prices are at a high. You’ll find the oldest used cars in the District of Columbia, where the average used car is 8 years old; the youngest used cars come from West Virginia and Arkansas, at 3.9 years old.

Average mileage, by state: In some states, long commuting and traveling distances mean a lot of miles racked up quickly. The states with the highest average miles on used cars are in the west: South Dakota tops the list, at nearly 80,000 miles average for all used cars on sale. The lowest-mileage cars? They’re found in Alaska, which has few roads to connect its major cities, and a state capital best reached by air or by boat.

Most popular brands: The nameplates you’ll see on used cars most often are no mystery. The best-selling vehicle in America for the past 33 years, the Ford F-150. is also the best-selling used vehicle in 22 states. The Chevy Silverado is the best seller in 10 other states, while the Honda Accord tops the used-car sales charts in seven states. By brand, Ford is the leader in used-car sales in 22 states.

Chevrolet Silverado Tops The List In These 10 States:

Hiring A Car In USA

It’s easy to get hold of a hire car in America, because there will be rental outlets at all the airports as well as other locations in cities such as bus depots. It’s a great idea to make sure you compare USA car hire prices well before you take the plunge – and to book in advance as well to get the best deal. If you’re planning a road trip, look out for companies that will let you hire from one outlet and return to another for no extra charge, otherwise your expenses could really add up.

Of course, make sure that you have all the proper identification and insurance documents with you, but once you’re on the road it should be no more difficult than remembering to drive on the correct side of the road and watching out for the speed limit, which is usually slower than in the UK

Since you’re on holiday. think a little about how to avoid rush hours – all the major towns and cities have them, and they can be pretty terrible. Maybe spend breakfast in a little more leisurely fashion or stroll your local area.

Pacific Coast Highway – Also known as Route 1, this is the quintessential US road trip – why not consider getting a convertible hire car for this American adventure! In total it runs for 656 miles, along some of the most breathtaking coastal scenery anywhere in the world, although some parts have been rerouted inland due to land slips. If you can’t do it all, be sure to include Monterey to San Simeon in your itinerary.

Seward Highway – Alaksa is an often-forgotten part of America when it comes to taking a road trip. But the scenery is most definitely spectacular! This trip into the last frontier is best for adventurous types who want some back-to-basics holiday fun along the way from Anchorage to Seward.

San Juan Skyway – This is a loop, traversing around the San Juan Mountains. It’s 233 miles long so could make a great trip in itself, or you could combine with more of the Colorado Scenic and Historic Byway. Expect stunning mountain views, quaint mining towns and sweeping roads. It would almost be criminal not to stop in Ouray for a dip in their hot-springs, whilst a detour to the incredible cliff dwellings in Mesa Verde National Park will be well worth your time.

Olympic Peninsula Highway 101 – Taking in the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State in an almost circular route, this drive combines the snow-topped peaks of the Olympic Mountains with a bird-watchers’ paradise in the lowlands, and the shores of Lake Crescent. Further on you’ll hit the coast, as well as Hoh Rain Forest and Quinault Rain Forest. All in all, you’ll see the rugged beauty of this part of the world, and you can add in a trip to cosmopolitan Seattle too!

Florida Keys Overseas Highway – This highway at the southern tip of Florida is not the longest of routes, but certainly one of the most photogenic. At 127 miles, it includes 40 bridges and takes you out to the farthest reaches of the Florida Keys, which are a string of practically tropical islands. Take your time here, enjoy the little villages, the seafood restaurants, the snorkelling and the slower pace of life.

Blue Ridge Parkway – This long road runs for 496 miles through the Appalachians, connecting Shenandoah National Park in Virginia with the Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina. Expect plenty of nature – the main attractions here are the flora and fauna, the hiking trails and the little campsites, so you might consider hiring tents and other equipment shortly after you get your hands on your hire car in the USA if you’re planning on following this route.

Deep South Musical Route – For all true country, blues and jazz fans this route may well be the trip of a lifetime. Running from Nashville in Tennessee to New Orleans in Louisiana, it’s a mammoth 776 miles! Along the way you’ll visit Memphis, Tunica, Clarksdale and Lafayette, and visit more important monuments to these musical genres than you could ever imagine.
