This loan payoff calculator works by dividing your loan amount by your repayment, leaving you with an estimate of how many years and months it will take to fully repay the debt. The higher your repayment is relative to the loan amount, the quicker you will repay the loan.
The loan balance chart graphs the difference in the time it takes to pay back just your principal vs the time it takes to pay back principal and interest. The higher your repayment frequency, the less differentiation you will see in the chart.
After you enter your details, your results will display an estimate of your loan term, as well as an estimate of your total interest payable and total repayments. You can experiment with different repayment amounts and frequencies to see how they impact the loan term estimate.
This loan payoff calculator is designed to give you an estimate of how long it will take to pay off your loan based on your loan amount, interest rate, repayment, and repayment frequency. The calculator works on a series of assumptions, including:
Because of how much variance there is in how different lenders calculate loan terms, a calculator can't give you a precise answer on how long it will take to pay off your loan. Therefore, this calculator should only be used to give you an indication of how paying different amounts at different frequencies impacts your loan term.
When you make loan repayments, you pay back the principal (loan amount) along with interest. Interest grows over time, so the sooner you pay back the principal, the less you will end up paying in out-of-pocket in interest.
You can use the loan payoff calculator on this page to estimate how long your loan term will be based on how much you're borrowing, the interest rate, and what your repayments will look like/how often they will be paid. Keep in mind; the result you get from the calculator is only an estimate, and your true loan term may vary depending on which lender you're borrowing from.
