Student debt help could be a new worker perk with loan payments resuming soon

There are approximately 43 million people in the U. S. with federal student loandebt, and they want to know which employers will help them pay it off.

“More and more frequently, I’m hearing from borrowers who are asking me if there’s a list,” said Betsy Mayotte, president of The Institute of Student Loan Advisors.

There’s no official list of employers, but those who do offer some sort of benefit see it as part of competing for talent in a tight job market.
