[Bloomberg Law] 401(k) Law’s Appeal Fades as Workers Face Student Debt Deadlines

In a recent article from Bloomberg Law, the provisions in the SECURE Act 2.0 that will allow employers to treat student loan repayment like retirement plan deferrals were analyzed. The end result eluded to the fact that today’s workforce needs and prefers direct assistance with their student loans.

Now is the time for employers to provide direct Student Loan Repayment as 45,000,000 borrowers are forced to resume monthly payments in October, after a 3.5 year pandemic-related payment holiday. These individuals will go from paying $0/month to $350/month on average. So when their employers help, they’ll be rewarded.
