Insurance provider Aetna jumped on the student loan repayment bandwagon in August, when the company announced it would help out employees who have graduated since Dec. 1, 2013. The company will match full-time employees’ student loan payments up to $2,000 per year, for a lifetime total of $10,000. For part-time employees, the company will match up to $1,000 a year with a cap of $5,000.
“As a health care company with a vision of building a healthier world, Aetna takes a holistic view of employee well-being–one that includes physical, mental, social, and financial health,” according to the company’s website.

Employees must also commit to stay with the health care organization for two years after the final loan repayment, she said.
