Betterment at Work is a leading provider of financial wellness solutions - including 401k plans - to small to medium-sized businesses.
Student loans are a primary reason why Americans don’t save enough for retirement. Moreover, student debt is a top contributor toward financial stress and employee turnover. Betterment sought to address these critical issues and needed a solution that could reliably sync student loan data, including monthly payments, repayment plans, and loan types. They needed to integrate complicated and confusing student loans into their intuitive user experience that simplifies financial understanding and decisions.
Additionally, given the CARES Act and pending Secure 2.0 legislation, Betterment wanted their solution to help employers take advantage of the tax benefits associated with both.
Betterment used Spinwheel’s best-in-class data and unique precision pay solutions with their roboadvising platform to put employer and employee student loan contributions on auto pilot – all tied to Betterment’s 401k platform. Benefits to Betterment’s customers include:
- Employers can now offer this sought-after employee benefit, along with having the option to take advantage of pre-tax treatment on student loan contributions that comply with section 127 of the IRS code
- Employers can also make contributions to an employee’s 401k without a matching contribution when they can verify that they are paying student loans
- Employees can easily sign up and enroll in this benefit, increasing employee participation
- Employees can create a plan to get out of debt years earlier and save thousands of dollars of debt, empowering them with the information they need to increase retirement savings and take control of their financial future
Student Loan Repayment Assistance
PeopleJoy provides comprehensive student loan assistance through analysis, advice, and employer and employee contributions.
Retrieving consistent and accurate data is critical to PeopleJoy’s services. Moreover, determining loans that qualify for tax incentives that save employers and employees money relies on understanding loan types and repayment plans. Beyond employer contributions, PeopleJoy needed a way to make it easy for users to budget and make extra payments to get out of debt faster.
Partnering with Spinwheel, PeopleJoy quickly launched a completely embedded solution to deliver a comprehensive student loan management experience for borrowers. Using our drop-in modules, PeopleJoy launched within a month, saving more than a year of development time and cost. Benefits include:
- PeopleJoy can ensure that loan types and repayment plans comply
- Borrowers can see all their loans in one place
- Precise payments can be made to individual loans across multiple loan servicers, ensuring that the maximum amount gets applied to principal over interest
- Borrowers can also round up the change from their purchases to make extra payments toward the principal of their most expensive loans
Student Loan Repayment Assistance
Tuition.io enables employers to offer a full suite of education assistance benefits.
Student Loan Debt Assistance is quickly growing in popularity as an important part of an employee benefits package. However, it’s only an effective recruitment and retention tool if employees can successfully connect their loans and access the loan data they need. When Tuition.io struggled with other data providers whose connections, coverage, and data were lacking, Spinwheel was the easy choice.
Tuition.io launched with Spinwheel’s Comprehensive Data + Insights product with incredible results. Because of Spinwheel’s stronger connections and better data:
- User adoption increased because of better coverage, allowing users to connect their loans with servicers that weren’t available without Spinwheel
- User retention increased significantly because users weren’t getting disconnected frequently
- Customer service costs reduced dramatically because users didn’t have to reconnect their loans repeatedly
