Once payoff is given, personal access line of credit loans and HELOCs will be locked and no advances can be taken.

Our loans are calculated with simple interest, the calculation of daily accrued interest on your principal loan balance.

Simple interest is calculated and assessed by multiplying the account’s current principal amount (and only the principal) by the interest rate. But as you pay down your principal with each monthly on-time payment, that principal decreases, lessening the interest assessed. If you pay more than the minimum required payment, the principal will decrease even more.
For example, a $25,000 loan at a 7% interest rate would be calculated using the formula (Principal Balance x rate)/ 365 days:

  • $25,000 x 7% = $1,750
  • $1,750/365 days = $4.80 per day
