Record levels of student loan debt has become a major source of financial stress, frequently displacing more traditional concerns over how to afford a home or support an expanding family. About 44 million Americans carry student loan debt and collectively owe more than about $1.4 trillion. That makes it the second largest consumer debt category, behind only home mortgages.
Millennials are putting off getting married; they may be delaying having kids or even buying a first home. Gen Xers are still paying down their own student loans while balancing the need to save for their kids’ college education and for their own retirement. They are taxed both emotionally and financially.
When we think about financial stress, clearly student debt contributes to it. And, unfortunately, those worries don’t simply dissipate when we walk in the office door. Because so many links between student loans and workplace success exist, companies are taking notice. Employers are paying attention because of the impact student loan debt has on recruitment, retention and employee productivity.
Come learn about the ways student loan stress is affecting you in the workplace. Find out about the various ways you can reduce your monthly student loan payments, get help from your employer and/or have some of your loans forgiven.
