Help Your Employees Save for College & Pay Down Student Loan Debt

  • Target Banner

Your employees appreciate the value of higher education and they also appreciate the cost. Not a week goes by without a news story about the rising costs of higher education and the $1.5 trillion in educational debt with which families are struggling. Planning ahead for college expenses helps alleviate reliance on loans – yet over 70% of families are not familiar with how to save. As an employer, providing valuable information on savings options and a convenient, systematic way to save for college (or to pay off student loan debt) is a priceless, low-cost addition to your voluntary benefit line-up with a high ROI.

A simple tool like Gift of College can go a long way in relieving employee stress and improving financial wellness.

  • Best of all, you don’t need to decide which 529 plan to offer.  Gift of College enables employees to contribute to ANY state's 529 college savings plan and ANY student loan account. The decision is theirs, not yours.
  • More savings and less debt = peace of mind and better outcomes for your employees and you!
