ChangeEd provides an app as a front-end to their service that borrowers can use to link the service to their loan servicer and bank accounts. The service withdraws an amount of money equal to the next full dollar, when the borrower makes a purchase with their debit card, and keeps it in an FDIC insured account they maintain until reaching $100 where a payment can be made to the loan servicer.
Founders, Nick and Dan built their business from the ground up by pulling their savings together and working hard to perfect ChangEd for the largest financial crisis of the millennial generation.
ChangEd aligns with your natural spending, makes small roundups to the next dollar, and applies the accumulated change toward your student loans.
