Bonus: Managing Student Loan Debt (Part II)

Farnoosh Torabi

Today’s episode is the second of two bonus shows dedicated to answering your student loan questions, a collaboration with TIAA, a leading provider of financial services in the academic, research, medical, cultural and government fields.

TIAA has been working hard to help its participating employers provide student loan repayment solutions to workers. You may have heard of some companies providing benefits related to student loan debt repayment. Well, TIAA is part of this movement. To help, they’ve created a collaboration with Savi, a social impact technology startup that’s working to solve the student debt crisis by helping workers discover new repayment and loan forgiveness options, specifically the Federal Public Student Loan Forgiveness program enrollment.

If you missed last week’s BONUS episode, the part one of our two-part series, please check it out. We talked about how to negotiate a refinance with your PRIVATE student lender and whether or not we can count on the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program? PSL F? Will it be sticking around?

My guest is Snezana Zlatar, Senior Managing Director and Head of Financial Wellness and Innovation for TIAA. We navigate some of your student loan questions – from how to best deal with GRADUATE student loan debt to financial aid options for single moms and people of color?

Snezana also shares more about the TIAA Savi collab and how it’s saving some workers with student loans who take advantage of the solution, thousands of dollars per year.
