Partners augment student loan repayment services with counseling and financial planning

These services enable Peanut Butter to deliver fully-featured, flexible, and objective student loan assistance programs that help companies attract, retain, and engage college-educated workers.

Today, Peanut Butter announces two new partnerships that add highly complementary services to its core student loan repayment administration offering. The company is now working with Money Management International (MMI) and Holberg Financial (HF) to provide student loan counseling and financial planning to its client employees. When combined with the refinancing marketplace, available through Peanut Butter’s partnership with Credible, these services enable Peanut Butter to deliver fully-featured, flexible, and objective student loan assistance programs that help companies attract, retain, and engage college-educated workers.

MMI is the largest nonprofit, full-service credit counseling organization in the nation. It has been providing financial counseling since 1958 and served 122,000 individuals and families in 2015 alone. The organization’s certified counselors are among the best trained in the financial education industry, providing one-on-one financial counseling in local offices across the country, and by phone 24/7.

“Student loans are a major issue for many working Americans and Peanut Butter is making it easy for employers to help their workers overcome that challenge.” said Ivan Hand, President and CEO of MMI. “We are thrilled by the opportunity to assist employees nationwide by complementing Peanut Butter’s existing core services with our comprehensive student loan education and counseling program.”

Peanut Butter’s partnership with Holberg Financial goes one step further. Holberg is a FINRA-registered financial advisor that provides ongoing assistance with investment decisions and financial planning. Joseph Holberg, CEO of Holberg Financial, said, “by partnering with Peanut Butter, we become part of an employee’s support system for building financial health achieving her/his financial goals.”
