The D.C. Bar has partnered with SoFi to also offer a range of financial wellness products to help provide solutions to employees to better manage their student loan debt and finances.

Student Loan Refinancing: We understand that many of our members are burdened with student loan debt. SoFi, the largest provider of student loan refinancing, may be able to reduce the cost of that debt. SoFi’s refinancing can help those with student debt save money on total interest, make lower monthly payments, or shorten the duration of their loans. The main benefits include:

  • $400 Welcome Bonus: For members who refinance through
  • Savings: Members save thousands by refinancing
  • Rates: Low variable and fixed rates with 5, 7, 10, 15 and 20-year repayment options
  • Simplicity: Consolidate all existing student loans (federal and private) into a single loan with one monthly payment
  • No Hidden Fees: No application fees, no origination fees, and no prepayment penalties for paying off your loan early
  • Membership Perks: SoFi offers complementary financial planning, exclusive member events, a referral program, and more

Don't have student loans? D.C. Bar has partnered with SoFi to offer Personal Loans to help Bar members.

Personal Loans: The SoFi Personal Loan is designed to help you borrow money for any kind of personal use such as paying off credit card debt, investing in home improvements, or paying for an unexpected medical expense. Unlike many credit cards, a SoFi Personal Loan has an interest rate under 15%. For more information and to qualify for a $100 welcome bonus when you take out a loan, please visit

Questions? Please visit or contact partnership support by calling 833-277-7634 or emailing [email protected].

Due to recent events, including changes to federally held loans that temporarily waive interest and suspend the obligation to make payments during the COVID-19 crisis, we are recommending that anyone with federal student loan debt carefully review your current and potential future benefits on your federal loans before refinancing. When you refinance your loans, you waive any current and potential future benefits of your federal loans, including temporary waiver of payments that the federal government will provide to federal student loan borrowers, and replace those with the benefits of a SoFi Student Loan Refinance.
