Apply for Student Debt Relief by March 31
Supporting services employees who are interested in taking advantage of student loan debt relief are asked to submit an application by Friday, March 31. This program helps eligible employees in the SEIU Local 500 bargaining unit pay off student loans sooner.
SEIU Local 500 and the Board of Education established the fund for SEIU Local 500 unit members to provide assistance in paying up to 5 percent yearly of an employee’s loan balance at the time of hire. Funding can be used to pay for programs at universities, trade schools, training programs and other institutions that provide educational opportunities for supporting services employees to do their jobs.
New applicants must attend a workshop to assist in filling out the required forms. Applications are available here. Interested? Find out if you are eligible, see a list of workshop dates and learn more.
