Of course! There’s no prepayment penalty for paying off your loan early. Doing so will actually help you save on interest over the long run.
A Personal Loan has a set number of payments called the loan term (for example, 48 months). After you have made all 48 payments your loan is paid off and closed. A Personal Line of Credit has a minimum monthly payment, but no set term. You can advance your loan funds, pay it off, and repeat. It gives payment flexibility by allowing you to make the minimum payment or more, up to the full balance. The line stays open until you request it be closed.
To complete your application, you will need to provide:
- Desired loan amount and term
