With an installment loan, you'll have the option to repay the loan early and save on interest, or you can choose to carry out a set number of payments for the life of the loan -- whichever's more affordable to you. Because your repayment schedule is fixed, you can easily budget to ensure that you make your payments when they're due to avoid any unnecessary fees for defaulting.
There are three things you can do immediately to improve your credit score. First, check your credit report. You can request a free copy, check for errors, and dispute any with the credit bureau. Second, set up automatic payments with your lenders or payment reminders for yourself. This will help to avoid missed or late payments. Third, pay down whatever debt you can, ideally the highest interest rates first. These three things will you started down the path to a higher credit score right away.
We adhere to the principles of the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Because we may report your payment history to one or more credit bureaus, late or non-payment of your loan may negatively impact your credit rating. If you fail to repay your loan in accordance with its terms, we may place your loan with or sell your loan to a third-party collection agency or other company that acquires and/or collects delinquent consumer debt.
