How are required monthly loan payments determined?
Your individual loan rate will vary based on your credit history and payment history. Borrowers who qualify for the lowest rate will have a better credit score than borrowers with less credit or lower scores. If you’re thinking of taking out a loan, be advised that a history of full, on-time payments tends to affect your credit score for the better.
As for paying off the principal, payments are set at $20.03 per every $1,000 borrowed.**
For example, the payment on a $10,000 loan would be $ $200.34 per month by using the $20.03 per $1000 at a non-variable interest rate of 7.49% APR with a 60 month term. This equates to $12,019.90 over the life of the loan. Membership is required with a $5 minimum deposit.
To determine how much your loan payment might be or how long it might take to pay off your loan, use our loan payment calculator and loan payment amount calculator.
When you consolidate your debts, you can sometimes reduce your interest payments and pay off your loans more quickly so you can get out of debt faster.
