The CARES Act includes two important provisions affecting both employers and employees. This new legislation changes the landscape for employer-sponsored student loan benefit programs and also pauses payments on federal student loans for borrowers. The CARES Act provides employers a powerful opportunity to make a meaningful impact on the financial wellbeing of their employees during these uncertain economic times.
SoFi is hosting a virtual panel discussion moderated by industry pros to arm employers with additional details on the implications of this new legislation.
