Student Loans

America’s student loan debt crisis is postponing the American Dream for 46 million borrowers. On top of it, the rules to reduce payments and forgive debt are so confusing that experts say the system is truly broken with a staggering $1.7 trillion pile of debt added up. 

That’s why the United Way is partnering with  Savi to provide relief and savings to student loan borrowers. There is no one-size-fits-all.
