Student Loan Forgiveness: Is Travel the Answer? -Forbes | Vette Leader

Student loan decree is on the horizon, and experts say President Joe Biden could now cancel student loans for more than 40 million Americans any day, paying down debt balances averaging over $37,000.

But what if you don’t qualify? Or what if it doesn’t happen?

Remote work and travel could be the answer. Fortunately, many companies are realizing that their employees need help paying off student loan debt — along with the fact that many people want to work from home or work and travel.

FlexJobs — a job search website specializing in flexible and remote employment — had identified 30 companies that offer student loan repayment assistance and hiring for remote jobs. So you can travel the world, earn money and not have to worry about student loans.

Many of the companies on the FlexJobs list offer student loan assistance through a monthly payment to people currently paying off debt. Other companies make annual student loan contributions (or even 401,000).

The amount of student loan forgiveness usually depends on whether the worker has full-time or part-time status.
