If you have student loan debt, you may be able to get help paying it down through your employer — or find one that does.

More than 44 million Americans are weighed down by student debt, owing a collective $1.7 trillion.

Now as the “Great Resignation” gains steam and workers look for new jobs, employers are trying to find ways to attract and retain talent. You can also work remotely or get help with loans. Below is a listing of employers that offer these benefits and are currently hiring.

Federal student loan payments, most of which were paused during the pandemic, are set to resume in January.

Toni Frana from FlexJobs, a Destin-based career coach, said that it is crucial for employers to reach employees at their level and offer benefits that are meaningful and valuable.

According to the 2021 Employer Financial Wellbeing survey, only 17% of employers currently offer student loan assistance. Another 31% intend to.

About 70% of employers reported that employee participation in this benefit has increased over the past two years.

Many Americans desire to be able to work from home and not have to return to the office. A Prudential survey this spring found a whopping 87% want the ability to continue to work from home.

Here are eight companies that are helping employees pay down student loan debt and also offer work-from-home positions, according to FlexJobs. Payscale provides the average base annual salary, except where noted otherwise in job postings.
