What are Education Benefits?

Navia’s Education Benefits are separated into two different solutions – Tuition Reimbursement and Student Loan Repayment.

Tuition Reimbursement

Tuition reimbursements are a great way to encourage employees to continue their education and help them build skills to benefit your company. Tuition reimbursement plans are customized to fit your company goals. For example, plans are tailored to reimburse a set amount of continuing education credits or college courses. They can also set up GPA requirements or only reimburse certain courses to an area of study. Plan costs are tax deductible, up to $5,250 per employee.

Student Loan Repayment

Student Loan Repayment allows employers to pay a portion of their employee’s student loan debt every year. These plans can be designed to pay the employee directly. Employers can pay up to $5,250 yearly per employee with student loan debt, tax-free.


*You can offer both plans, but can only fund a total of $5,250 per employee per year between both plans.

How Does it Work?

  • You are automatically enrolled. Your employer will automatically enroll you in the plan they offer.
  • Learn about your specific plan. Since each Benefit Education plan is different, you will need to make sure you know your plan details. You will receive a Navigation Guide from Navia. This guide will have all your plan specifics.
  • Funds are available according to your plan design. The funds are available based upon your employer’s plan. Once you have funds available you are able to submit claims for reimbursement.
  • Submit claims online! Claims can be submitted on the Navia participant portal or through Navia’s mobile app. You will need a copy of your receipt when sending your claim to Navia.
