On February 7, 2018, this company was sued by the Federal Trade Commission for practices related to their student loan debt relief operation. The United States District Court entered a Preliminary Injunction Order on November 29, 2018, and appointed a Receiver to take possession and control of American Financial Benefits Center d/b/a AFB and AF Student Services, AmeriTech Financial, and Financial Education Benefits Center. The Receiver has suspended operations and is now conducting a review of the businesses.

We recommend that you immediately contact your student loan servicer. A list of student loan servicers can be found at: For free information about repaying your federal student loans, go to

The Receiver has established a webpage with information about the lawsuit which will be periodically updated.

I worked with Janet Fletcher out of their northwest California office and from the moment I was in the know about the whole process works. Was paying $99 a month and the overall numbers compared to the debt I had from going to college was much lower. Was very impressed with how the process works as I read a lot of reviews online and didnt think that student loan debt consolidation was the right move for me after hearing about the process from others in my graduating class that tried out the service. After speaking with Janet and now having a lower monthly payment I've become extremely happy with the whole process and am glad I did so. 5 stars to anybody who saves me money.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! With one phone call I was able to lower my monthly loan payments! The guy I talked to was really nice and helpful. He asked me all these questions about my loans. I didn't want to defer, but I wasn't earning that much and the payments were killing me. He gave me options for programs to consolidate and lower monthly payments. The people at Ameritech really want to help and their service is amazing!

One of the best features of Ameritech Financial is the company's success rate at helping me with my terms of student loan deferment plans. A good number of new college graduates that I spoke with also used Ameritech Financial and we are all pissed off to find out that our starting salaries are not sufficient enough to meet my daily expenses and make the monthly student loan payments once the deferment period is up. Jessica my account specialist helped to get payments reduced and others deferred for a period.
