Companies to offer 2024 graduates student loan payment benefits


Handshake Chief Education Strategy Officer Christina Cruzvergara joins Yahoo Finance Live anchors Akiko Fujita and Seana Smith to break down how various industries are offering younger workers benefits packages to help pay off student loan debt.

Student loan repayments are set to restart in October. What should U.S. borrowers know concerning where to find relief and what to avoid? Yahoo Finance's Rachelle Akuffo and Ronda Lee are joined by Student Defense Vice President and Chief Counsel Dan Zibel and Boies Schiller Flexner Partner Adam Shaw to talk about the "predatory" nature of many private student loan companies and the for-profit colleges that partner with them. Zibel notes many accredited universities attract potential students by promising them opportunities and easy access to funding through private loans. Shaw encourages U.S. borrowers to reassess their finances and even consider whether “bankruptcy is right for them because there may be a path there now that was not there before.”
