Student loan refinancing can you help you save money on interest.

You’ve probably heard it before from a friend, colleague, or social media ad.

But how do you know if it’s a smart idea? Would you really qualify for a lower rate? Will it actually save you money?

That’s where a free student loan refinance consultation from Purefy can help — whether you don’t know where to start, want to learn more about lenders and rates, or simply have some questions about the process.

Find out how a Student Loan Advisor can provide indispensable support during your refinancing journey.

Why a student loan refinance consultation is important

Refinancing your student loans is a major decision.

There are great benefits to take advantage of with a student loan refinance — the most popular of which is getting a much lower rate to save big on interest costs.

But there are also some potential drawbacks that might make refinancing the wrong choice in certain situations. For example: after refinancing, you lose federal student loan benefits including Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF). PSLF is typically a more favorable repayment option than refinancing — for those who qualify.

With lots of nuances that depend on your circumstances, deciding whether to refinance or not can be confusing. Is it the right option for you — or is there a better solution out there?

A consultation helps you discover if refinancing makes sense and explores your other repayment alternatives in-depth. All with a Student Loan Advisor who does this day in and day out.

The best part? Each consultation is completely personalized to you. Your Student Loan Advisor is dedicated to your success — providing specific recommendations and guidance based on your unique needs.

Oh yeah, and it’s totally free.

What you can learn from a Student Loan Advisor

Should you refinance your student loans?

Your personal and financial information will customize your consultation and refinancing recommendations. We’ll look at your credit health, education history, and employment background to understand you and your situation — and if a refinance makes sense in that picture.

What are the pros and cons of refinancing?

You’ll learn the positives and drawbacks of student loan refinancing — from saving money on interest and paying off your debt sooner to losing access to PSLF and income-driven repayment plans.

Using your financial goals, we’ll weigh the pros and cons to help determine a path forward.

Do you qualify?

We’ll take care of calculating your monthly payments with your new interest rates and see how much you can save with different options.
