NASFAA, New America, and Young Invincibles, in partnership with the Urban Institute and the Chamber of Commerce, have been working together through a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The grant examined the implementation challenges surrounding automatic enrollment of all student loan borrowers in income-based repayment, with a particular focus on the feasibility and design of employer withholding of student loan payments. This interactive session will explain and discuss the findings of the consortium as part of the third phase of the Reimagining Aid Design and Delivery project.
