  • Securian Financial Teams Up with BenefitEd to Offer Suite of Education Benefits to Workplace Retirement Plan Customers

    January 13, 2021 by Securian Financial

    ST. PAUL, Minn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Securian Financial, through a collaboration with BenefitEd, is making a suite of education benefits available to its workplace retirement plan customers.

    The benefits include employer-assisted student loan repayment, college savings, student loan repayment support and tuition reimbursement. Along with “Employee Choice”—a program allowing employees to choose if their employer-matched funds go toward paying off their students loans, funding their retirement plan or both—the benefits are available to Securian Financial retirement plan customers at reduced pricing.

    More than 44 million Americans have student loan debt. More than 65% of public and private non-profit college graduates left college with student loan debt in 2018. They carried an average financial burden of $29,200.1

    “With student loan debt being a significant financial pain point for countless Americans, we are excited to team up with BenefitEd to offer these important benefits to our customers,” said Brandon Bellin, Securian Financial director and actuary for retirement solutions.
