How much do you owe?
Use this calculator to find out how much you owe. This can be used as a good starting point for your debt management plan. Enter all of your credit cards and outstanding installment loans balances. Find out how much you owe and how long it will take to pay it all off.
|Credit cards||Enter up to 10 credit card accounts, one on each line.|
|Balance||Your current balance on your credit card.|
|Interest rates||The average annual percentage rate you pay. This interest rate is calculated for each of the categories of debt you have including credit cards, Auto Loans and other installment loans. For credit cards the rate you enter is used to calculate the interest on all future credit card payments. The length of time to pay off this credit card may be much greater than calculated if you enter a low promotional interest rate that is only good for a short period of time.|
|Auto loans||Click on the details button to enter any auto loans you may have. The details page is designed to let you enter your current monthly payment, the term (in months), the starting balance, the number of months you have left. It then calculates your outstanding balance and interest rate. You can enter up to three installment loans.|
|Other loans||Click on the details button to enter any additional installment loans you may have. The details page is designed to let you enter your current monthly payment, the term (in months), the starting balance, and the number of months you have left. It then calculates your outstanding balance and interest rate. You can enter up to six installment loans.|
|Payment||This is your initial monthly payment. For
credit cards, if you checked the "use credit card minimum payments"
box, your monthly payment is calculated as 2% of your current outstanding
balance. With the "use credit card minimum payments" box checked,
your monthly payment will decrease as your balance is paid down.
This can greatly increase the length of time it takes to pay off
your credit cards. Uncheck this box to enter your own monthly payment
that will remain the same until your balance is paid in full.
( We calculate your minimum monthly payment as 2% of your current
outstanding balance. While your actual minimum monthly payment
may be slightly different, this is one of the most common methods
used by credit card companies to calculate minimum payments.)
