Pillar is being acquired!

March 2, 2021

We're excited to announce that Pillar is being acquired! We’ll be closing our virtual doors on April 14th, 2021. As of this date, our web app and dashboard will no longer be accessible.

We started Pillar in 2018 with the goal to help consumers get out of student loan debt. We built one of the most popular student loan apps in the US, but 2020 threw us a curveball when the government shut down the student loan market due to Covid-19. As a result, we pivoted to our new business, Pillar Life, to help people better care for their loved ones.

Our team will be joining a new company and going back to our roots. We'll be building products that help people achieve financial well-being. We can’t say where we're headed just yet, but we’ll have more to share very soon. 🤭

I want to personally thank YOU for being a Pillar customer. Your feedback and suggestions helped our team build an amazing tool that has helped thousands of families across the world. Thank you for giving us a chance and for trusting us to help you in your financial journey.
