Nearly 45 million Americans have student debt. This debt can burden household budgets, keep people from achieving their financial goals, and inhibit the economic mobility of entire families. Given the disproportionate impact on low-income households and communities of color, tackling student debt is a critical part of fighting for financial stability and racial equity in communities.
That’s why United Way teamed up with Savi to help people freely and easily access student loan debt relief. Savi’s innovative platform helps America's 46 million student loan borrowers better understand their debt, optimize their repayment options, and enroll in the best plan for their financial needs. The goal is to help borrowers enroll in government repayment and forgiveness programs that could lower their monthly payments and potentially eliminate their debt.
