CommonBond student loan refinancing

Paying down student loan debt can be challenging. That’s why AXA XL has partnered with CommonBond to provide student loan refinancing opportunities. CommonBond offers you a way to consolidate and/or refinance your student loans into one, low fixed-rate loan that can save you money over the life of your loan.

What is student loan refinancing?

Refinancing means taking out a new loan – at a lower interest rate – to replace your old loans. Now that you've got a higher income and better credit score than you did when you originally took out your student loans, CommonBond may be able to give you a better interest rate on those loans.

Why refinance with CommonBond?

CommonBond members save over $24,046, on average, by refinancing.1 Plus, as a member of the AXA XL network, you'll get a $200 cash bonus when you refinance.2 For every loan CommonBond funds, they also fund the education of a child in need through their Social Promise.

Not sure if refinancing is right for you?

Deciding whether to refinance your student loans can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. Learn about what refinancing is all about, how CommonBond can help, and consider whether it’s right for you by watching this webinar. Then, once you’re ready to get started with CommonBond, visit http://cbpartner.co/axaxl.

1 Savings calculation of $24,046 is based on student loans refinanced with CommonBond between 1/1/17 and 1/31/17. Savings is calculated as the difference between borrowers’ estimated future payments for their previously held loans and their future expected payments after refinancing with CommonBond. The calculation is a weighted average dollar savings of CommonBond refinance loans and assumes interest rates will not change over time, members make all payments on time, members enroll in ACH, and they do not pre-pay their loans. CommonBond's average savings methodology excludes refinance loans during the period mentioned above in which members elect a refinance loan with longer maturity than their existing student loans, the term length of the member’s original student loan(s) is greater is than 30 years, and the member did not provide sufficient information regarding his or her outstanding balance, loan type, APR, or current monthly payment.

You can set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for qualified transit and parking expenses. In 2021, the transit monthly pre-tax limit is $270, and the parking monthly pre-tax limit is $270. If your transit or parking costs exceed these limits, you can set aside unlimited after-tax deductions to cover the difference. Your transit or parking costs will be paid through payroll deductions.

You also have the option to enroll in a MasterCard Commuter Check Card that you can use to make transit payments.
