About this exclusive member benefit
Student loan debt is a staggering problem across generations. Many adults have student loan debt from their educational pursuits and also from borrowing to finance their children's education.
NACAC understands that easing the burden of student debt is critical to well-being and that navigating student loans on your own can be overwhelming.
That's why NACAC has teamed up with Savi to help NACAC members tackle student loan debt.
If you are employed by a secondary school, college, or university, you are likely eligible for forgiveness programs such as the federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program. Many of these programs go underutilized and are often confusing to understand and obtain without assistance.
To get started using the tool, you'll first need to go to the For Members page (see instructions above). Once on the Savi website, you'll create a free Savi account and enter your student loan information.
The Savi tool assesses your student loan debt and presents the results in a clear and meaningful way. You'll receive an actionable plan for enrolling in government repayment programs that lower your monthly payments. It also searches more than 150 forgiveness and repayment programs to help you unlock student loan forgiveness.
How much you can save
By using the Savi Student Loan Repayment tool, the average student loan borrower:
- Saves $1,880 per year
- Qualifies for $28,000 in loan forgiveness
In addition to the financial savings, you can also benefit in other significant ways. Recent public health studies have shown, for example, that student debt can affect stress levels and sleep and may lead to depression.
NACAC is offering the Savi service to members so you can easily access significant savings opportunities. Our hope is that these options help as many members as possible obtain student debt relief.

About Covid-19 and Pandemic Relief
Student loan payments and interest on federally-held student debt has been paused through September 30, 2021.
This suspension benefits borrowers in many ways. Borrowers in default can take advantage of the suspension of payments to get their loans back into good standing. Any time spent in suspension will count towards the number of rehabilitation payments a borrower in default is required to make for their loan to return to their servicer.
Not-for-profit employees could be one-sixth of the way towards total student loan forgiveness with the current payment pause. The months in suspension because of the pandemic do count towards your 120 qualifying payments for Public Service Loan Forgiveness and Savi can help get your application in check.
Savi (bysavi.com) is a social impact tech startup based in Washington, D.C. working to solve the student debt crisis by helping borrowers better navigate the complicated repayment and forgiveness process. Founded by long-time student loan experts and advocates, Savi is a public benefit corporation that has identified more than $200 million in projected forgiveness for student loan borrowers.
NACAC's collaboration with Savi does not involve or promote student loan refinancing of any kind and only supports taking advantage of existing student loan options.
This member benefit is provided by a third party, not by NACAC or its affiliates. This offer is subject to change and may have restrictions.
