The path to reducing your monthly student loan payment and working toward loan forgiveness could be getting much easier. That’s because you and your family members have access to a robust solution that helps you find the best federal repayment and forgiveness programs for your financial situation.
Through The University of Alabama’s partnership with TIAA, we are pleased to announce Savi, a service that can help you strengthen your financial footing in the short term and position you for student loan forgiveness, including the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program (PSLF). UA is a qualifying employer for PSLF as a not-for-profit public service organization that’s tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3), and Savi can help eligible employees with student debt take advantage of this money-saving program and more.
