Use this loan calculator to determine your monthly payment, interest rate, number of months or principal amount on a loan. Find your ideal payment by changing loan amount, interest rate and term and seeing the effect on payment amount.
You can also create and print a loan amortization schedule to see how your monthly payment will pay-off the loan principal plus interest over the course of the loan.
Use this savings calculator to determine how much you may have if you regularly save money. Interest rates on most types of accounts are variable, meaning that they fluctuate up and down over time.
- Savings accounts, money market accounts, and certificates of deposit are FDIC insured (up to $250,000) and tend to offer lower average interest rates that fluctuate slowly. Many people prefer them for saving for goals they feel it’s important to achieve within a shorter period of time.
- Investment accounts are not FDIC insured and, with a diverse mix of stocks and bonds, offer higher average interest rates that fluctuate more frequently. Many people prefer them for saving for goals they’re willing to wait to achieve for a longer period of time.
Mortgage Payment Calculator
Use this mortgage calculator to estimate your monthly payment including taxes and insurance. Many people prefer to ask their mortgage lender to refine this estimate when they apply for a home loan because tax and insurance costs depend on the location, age, and condition of the home. Lenders may also be aware of other fees such as home owners association dues and will include them in their estimate.
