This loan payoff calculator can be used to estimate how much money you can save, as well as the number of months saved by increasing your monthly payment beyond your regularly scheduled amount. This loan payoff calculator uses the initial loan amount, the terms of the loan, and the additional payment, to calculate the dollars, as well as time, saved by adding money to each payment.
The variables used in our online calculator are defined in detail below, including how to interpret the results.
Initial Loan Amount ($)
This is the original amount of the loan, also referred to as the loan's principal.
Annual Interest Rate (%)
This is the annual interest rate on the loan. This is not the APR, which takes into account other costs associated with the loan.
Term of the Loan (Years)
This is the original term or length of the personal loan, stated in years. The most common terms for personal loans range from 3 to 10 years.
Remaining Principal on Loan ($)
This is the remaining principal on the loan. This amount can be found on your most recent statement. If you are using this calculator for a new loan, then just enter the same amount as the Initial Loan Amount.
