Here are clear and simple explanations of the factors considered in your application.
Your FICO® Score summarizes your credit history. We also provide our Payoff® Loan Members with their free FICO® Score every month.
Your debt-to-income ratio (DTI) is your total unsecured debt (personal loans, credit cards, etc.) divided by your annual income. A low DTI ratio demonstrates a good balance between debt and income.
Age of Credit History
Your age of credit history is the total length of time you've been using credit. This shows your credit maturity starting from your first line of credit.
Open and Satisfactory Trades
Your open and satisfactory trades are the lines of credit on which you've opened and made payments on time.
Your credit delinquencies are payments you owe and have not currently paid.If you have any, we suggest resolving these before applying for a Payoff® Loan.

What is the Payoff® Loan?
The Payoff Loan is a personal loan between $5,000 and $35,000 designed to eliminate or lower your credit card balances. The Payoff Loan is designed to allow you to take control of your finances and pay your credit cards off faster. This is made possible by consolidating your high-interest card balances into one monthly payment at a fixed rate and term.
Will checking my rate for the Payoff Loan affect my credit?
Checking your Payoff Loan rate will not hurt your credit. Right before you finalize your Payoff Loan, we run a hard inquiry, which can impact your credit. But good news, our Members see an average FICO® Score increase of 40 points*.
Is the Payoff Loan available everywhere?
We are working hard to offer the Payoff Loan in all states. Currently, the Payoff Loan is not yet available in Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Can I use the Payoff Loan for anything other than credit cards?
The Payoff Loan is designed to eliminate credit card debt. In some cases, the Payoff Loan can be used to consolidate prior installment loans. We’ve also teamed up with College Ave Student Loans to help eliminate student debt. To find out more, please contact us.
Can I use the Payoff Loan for my spouse's cards or debts?
We do not offer joint applications at this time. Currently, you may only pay off outstanding balances that are verifiable on your personal credit report.
Can I make additional payments?
Yes! In fact, we encourage it. Making additional payments is always a good idea and can help you end your debt more quickly, as well as minimize your overall paid interest.
Are there any prepayment penalties?
No. There are no prepayment penalties with the Payoff Loan.
How quickly can Payoff fund my Payoff Loan?
Most approved loans are funded within two to five business days after the verification process is completed.

- A bank statement or bank credentials to securely link your bank account
- A driver's license, passport or state issued ID to verify your identity
- Your two most recent paystubs or most recent tax return if self-employed to confirm your income
To learn exactly how to prepare your documents and finalize your Payoff Loan application, see our Document Upload Guide.
When are my Payoff Loan Payments due?
Your payments are withdrawn directly from your designated checking account on a monthly basis. You can find your payment date on your promissory note or in your Member Account. You can change your date once every 12 months.
What happens if I can't make my monthly payment?
Life happens and we understand that. Please contact us if you're experiencing difficulty with your monthly payments. We’re always here to help and will work to understand your individual situation to keep you working toward your goal of paying off your credit cards.
What is an origination fee?
An origination fee is a nonrefundable prepaid finance charge. The fee helps cover our costs and allows us to create products and provide personalized services that help you on your way towards financial freedom.
What do I do if I'm not approved for the Payoff Loan?
You can apply somewhere else, or you can wait and reapply in 30 calendar days after a declined application.
What's the difference between a hard inquiry and soft inquiry?
A soft inquiry is when someone checks your credit report for any number of reasons (rent, background check, pre-approval, etc.), and it does not affect your credit score. When you check your rate for the Payoff Loan, we do a soft inquiry.
A hard inquiry is when a financial institution (a bank, Payoff, credit card or mortgage company, etc.) checks your credit report before giving you a loan. Unlike soft inquiries, hard inquiries can affect your credit score and remain on your credit report for two years. For added security, we do a hard inquiry right before you finalize your Payoff Loan to check for new unsecured personal loans as well as bankruptcies and delinquencies.
