A recent survey conducted by IonTuition found that 80 percent of workers would work for a company that provided assistance with their student loan payments; which makes sense given that 44 million Americans are struggling with student loan debt. Here are five companies that are helping their employees pay off their student loan debt.
Aetna. The healthcare company offers full-time and part-time employees tuition reimbursements on student loan repayment. Their student loan repayment program matches part-time employee student loan payments up to $1,000 per year with a lifetime maximum of $5,000. For full-time employees, Aetna matches student loan payments up to $2,000 per year with a lifetime maximum of $10,000.
Chegg. The textbook rental and online tutoring company gives eligible employees $1,000 a year as part of their student loan repayment benefit.
Fidelity Investments. Not only does this company offer tuition reimbursement for work-related educational expenses, it offers up to $10,000 ($2,000 a year contribution) paid directly to your student loan servicer.
Penguin Random House. The publishing company offers up to $9,000 through their student loan repayment benefit (up to $1,200 a year).
PwC. The accounting firm provides associates up to $10,000 in total (up to $1,200 a year) through their company’s student loan repayment benefit.
For borrowers who are struggling with student loan debt, relief options are available. Many student loan borrowers are unaware that they have rights and repayment options available to them, such as postponement of loan payments, reduction of payments or even a complete discharge of the debt.
