ASAE Webinar Explores Student Loan Repayment Programs as Employee Benefit

The American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) hosted a free webinar, “Student Loan Benefits and Your Organization’s Retirement Program” Nov. 21. Different retirement plan programs and reasons why employers should offer student loan repayment as an employee benefit were discussed.  Pharmaceutical and health care products company Abbott Laboratories was featured as a case study for its innovative program designed to encourage employees to pay down their student debt by helping them save for retirement at the same time.

For employers interested in benefits programs, the Veterinary Debt Initiative recently published an article from an employer who implemented one type of benefit program.
