So Money - Episode Bonus

Bonus: Managing Student Loan Debt

Farnoosh Torabi

Today’s episode is one 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. 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. The solution helps individuals with their student debt, specifically their Federal Public Student Loan Forgiveness program enrollment.

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 negotiate lower rates on your private loan and whether it’s wise to put extra money towards your student loans or a retirement plan?

Snezana also shares more about the TIAA Savi collab and how it’s saving workers with student loans who take advantage of the solution an average of $1,900 a year.
