What: During these tough economic times, employers have the unique opportunity to be heroes in their teams challenge to manage student loan debt.

Why: Providing support with student loan debt can help alleviate one of your employees' most significant concerns. The current $1.6 trillion in U.S. student loan debt has created a multigenerational economic burden—and that's just not ok.

Historically, many employers have not offered student loan benefits because the tax treatment created a burden for both companies and employees. This section of CARES removes barriers for companies to enhance their employee financial wellness, recruitment, and retention offerings with non-taxable student loan contributions which empowers employees to pay down their debt balances faster.
