Pet insurance

Pet insurance through MetLife can help you keep your pet healthy by helping to pay for covered vet expenses, including:

  • Accidental injuries
  • Illnesses
  • Exam fees
  • Surgeries
  • Medications
  • Hospital stays
  • Ultrasounds, x-rays, and diagnostic tests

The plan runs on a month-to-month basis, so you can enroll in or drop coverage at any time during the year. Note that pet insurance may not cover pre-existing conditions. Get a quote or enroll by visiting http://www.metlife.com/getpetquote or calling 800-GET-MET8.

Commuter benefits

PayFlex is now Inspira Financial

PayFlex has changed their name to Inspira Financial. Here's what you need to know about using your commuter benefits with Inspira Financial:

  • You'll still use the same phone number for customer service.
  • To submit claims and review your balance, you'll go to inspirafinancial.com and use the same login credentials you used on the PayFlex website.
  • You can continue using your current PayFlex card, and there will be no interruptions to accessing your account funds.

If you commute to work or pay for parking, consider using the Inspira Financial commuter benefit.

You can set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for qualified transit and parking expenses. In 2024, the transit monthly pre-tax limit is $315, and the parking monthly pre-tax limit is $315. 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.


When you purchase your transit pass online, you’ll receive it directly at your home address. Be sure to think ahead when you’re planning your commute. When you enroll and purchase a pass by the first of the month, it will be mailed by the 23rd of that month. For example, if you’d like to receive your transit pass by May 1, you’ll need to enroll and purchase it on April 1. You also have the option to enroll in a MasterCard Commuter Check Card that you can use to make transit payments.


The monthly parking payment will be mailed directly to the specified parking location that you select. In most cases, Inspira Financial will be able to pay your parking vendor directly. If this isn’t possible, you’ll be able to submit a claim form to Inspira Financial and receive reimbursement.

Scholarship program

Each year, the XL America Scholarship Foundation awards one-year educational scholarships to children of U.S. AXA XL colleagues who have achieved academic excellence and are in pursuit of higher education. If you have a son or daughter who has graduated from high school, or is graduating this year, and will be enrolled in an accredited undergraduate or graduate institution in the fall, they are eligible to submit applications.

Eligibility requirements

Applicants must meet the eligibility requirements set out when the program is launched in the Spring. Please note that dependents of XL America Scholarship Foundation board members or donors are not eligible. In addition, children of colleagues who earn an annualized base salary of $285,000 or more (please note that this dollar figure may change annually) are also not eligible.
