Wednesday, February 22, 2017 6:30 AM

The problem of student loan debt puzzles many in the financial world and burdens millions of Americans each year. And the amount of student loan debt continues to skyrocket, surpassing all other forms of debt outside of mortgages, even credit card debt. But Filene has created an innovative new way to help your members with student loans find solutions to loan debt problems while keeping them connected to your credit union:  Debt Dragon.

Debt Dragon guides students through relatable, interactive scenarios that show real-time financial implications and alternatives about their investment options with clear action items, next steps, and checklists. Debt Dragon is unique because it speaks right to students and breaks down each debt factor in ways they'll understand. Each decision demonstrates in dollars and cents how even the little things can affect their final debt load.

Help Filene help you and your members by signing up to be a tester for the new Debt Dragon online student loan management program. Watch a short video.

Debt Dragon offers many benefits for your credit union and your members. You'll get constant support from Filene, and testers and be able to share best practices with one another. Members and their families will get a holistic view of college financial planning, such as estimating true costs specific to the user and providing options for funding they may not have considered.
By signing up to test Debt Dragon, you’re helping your members tame their student loan debt and keeping your members from falling off the cliff of student loan debt.
