Does my contract or loan allow for a grace period?
No, monthly payments are due on or before their due date, however we typically do not assess a late charge unless payments are more than 10 days late. Please remember that paying late delays repayment of your principal balance resulting in additional finance charge or interest accruing over the life of your account.
Please see your contract or loan documents to review your late charge provision.
What should I do if my monthly payment is going to be late?
Please contact the branch location servicing your account to discuss your situation.
How do I change my due date?
Typically we will allow a customer to change their due date once in the term of their contract or loan, if we decide the change will truly help the customer make future payments on time. Please contact the branch location servicing your account to discuss your request.
How does finance charge or interest accrue?
Your finance charge or interest (as applicable) is computed on a daily basis as it accrues on your unpaid principal balance at your annual percentage rate (APR) or interest rate (as applicable). You can reduce the cost of your finance charge or interest if you pay before your monthly due date, you pay more than your monthly payment amount or you do both. Conversely, you will increase the cost of your finance charge or interest if you pay after your monthly due date, you pay less than your monthly payment amount, or you do both.
Is there a penalty for prepayment?
No, even if the law allows us to impose a penalty.
How do I obtain a payoff amount on my contract or loan?
Please contact the branch location servicing your account.
Why is my unpaid principal balance different from my payoff amount?
The unpaid principal balance available through eServices or on your monthly statement (if applicable) is not your payoff amount because your unpaid principal balance does not include accrued but unpaid finance charge or interest, accrued but unpaid late charges or other fees (if applicable), and any refunds of insurance premiums (if applicable).
Why is my payment amount due different from my monthly payment amount (if applicable)?
Your payment amount due includes any regular monthly payment(s) due, any unpaid late charges and any prior short or over amount. The prior short or over amount is the difference between the amounts you have paid and the amounts due, as of the date of your monthly statement (if applicable) or the last close of business for eServices. For example, if you are due for $315 and you only pay $300 then you are short $15. On the other hand, if you are due for $315 and you pay $325 then you are $10 over. Provided your account is not in default, the minimum amount necessary to advance your payment due date is the lesser of your payment amount due or regular monthly payment(s) due. However, please remember you will generally accrue less interest or finance charge in the future if you pay the greater of the two amounts. If your account is in default, we may require the greater of the two amounts or a different amount.
Where can I go to get more information about credit?
You can visit the American Financial Services Association Education Foundation's website at www.afsaef.org for general information about vehicle financing, credit cards, and personal loans.
How do you apply my monthly payments?
Your monthly payments are applied first to accrued and unpaid finance charge or interest, then to any accrued and unpaid fees, and then to your principal balance.
