An installment loan is a way to borrow money and pay it back over time through scheduled payments. Payment amounts are typically the same, with the possible exception of first and last payments. The loan amount, interest rate and number of payments determine the payment schedule. At Blue Trust Loans, the payback period for new customers is 6 months and we typically schedule loan payments on the customers’ paydays. For instance, a new customer who gets paid bi-weekly or twice a month would have 12 payments over the 6-month period. You can choose to pay off your loan early without penalty. If you’d like to pay extra on a scheduled payment due date, the extra money will go to reduce your loan’s principal. Any additional payment amount you make may shorten your payback period or lower the total fees you pay on the loan. For more information, call Customer Service.
