Many workers with student loans postpone saving for retirement. Now, a handful of companies are trying to prevent them from falling behind on retirement savings by matching their student-loan repayments with contributions to a 401(k) plan.
In recent months, companies including Abbott Laboratories, Travelers Cos. and Raytheon Co. have either launched or announced plans for such programs, joining companies like Unum that are helping employees reduce student debt in other ways.
