Student Loan Genius
Student Loan Genius (SLG) is an employee student loan benefit company, and the first to go beyond simple refinancing to offer holistic student loan services. Founded in 2013, we were first to the market with a student loan repayment benefit and our innovative approach is designed to impact the modern workforce – especially millennials – to deliver a benefit employees truly want and need.
Our goal is to eliminate 20% – or 0B – of the current .3 trillion student loan debt in the US. We intend to do this through products that drive education and informed decision-making, along with employer benefits that aid in the elimination of debt and the building of retirement wealth.
Student Loan Genius, inventor of America’s first employer student loan benefit, has helped make student loan help available to more than 40,000 American families in 2016 alone. Built, supported, and managed by people who not only understand, but have faced the life hurdles caused by student loans, our unique approach to student loan help does more than throw money at the problem. The Genius Advisor, Pay, and Save services have helped cut student loan payments by 38 percent and helped some users trim 11+ years off student loan repayment timelines.
The stories of our users who are able to quit their second jobs or save ,000 in 7-10 minutes with our tool are what keep us going. Recognized and called on repeatedly by Bloomberg, Forbes, the Aspen Institute, Congressman, and others for our approach to helping people, we’re committed to solving the student loan problem in any way we can. We want to help today’s companies and employees create real impact for employees.
Whether the challenge is attracting the right new hires or helping grow productivity by reducing stress, we work to make sure every client and employer find a way to relief from student loans.
