Our Mission:

About BenefitEd

BenefitEd offers customized employer-assisted student loan repayment programs and college savings programs to employers looking to build highly competitive, differentiated benefits packages. We offer these programs direct to employers, through benefit brokers, and white label solutions.

In 2017, BenefitEd became a joint partnership between Ameritas Life Insurance Corp. and Nelnet, Inc. This partnership leverages Ameritas’ expertise in the distribution and management of employee benefits and Nelnet’s relationships with student loan lenders and decades of experience in payment processing. Through significant scale and experience, BenefitEd can meet the needs of companies both large and small.
