Installment Loan Payments

If you took out your loan online - the morning your payment is due, we will automatically process your payment from your bank account. You can also make payments in a store, but payments in a store must be made before your due date if you loaned online. If you took out your loan in a store – You will have the option to set up automated payments that will be automatically processed from your bank account, the morning your payment is due. If you did not set up automated payments you can make a payment in a store. You will have until close of business on your due date to make a payment, if a payment is not made your account will be automatically processed the same day.

If your loan is in good standing - or one full payment has been made - and your available credit is greater than your current minimum payment, then you may be able to refinance your loan. If you refinance your loan, then the principal amount will be rolled into a new term in which you will continue to be charged daily interest.

Yes! You can make additional payments at any time and you can pay off your loan early without any early pay-off penalties or fees.

Loan Protection Questions

Cash Money offers a loan protection plan that provides insurance on your installment loan. Loan protection covers your loan in the event that you are unable to meet your financial obligations due to unexpected events such as loss of life, critical illness, injury or unemployment.

The cost of loan protection depends upon the amount of your loan payment. For example, a $3,500 loan with monthly payments would cost $47.25 per payment for insurance.
