This free online Debt Pay Off Calculator will calculate the monthly payment required to pay off a given debt within the length of time you specify.
Plus, the debt payoff calculations will also tell you how much interest you will save by shortening the term of the loan.
If you shorten the length of time to pay off a debt, you will also reduce the total interest charges you end up paying to your lender. And when you reduce the interest charges you are essentially increasing your spendable income by the amount saved. So who would you rather see earn that extra income, you? Or your lender?
With that, let's use the debt pay off calculator to see how much your monthly payment will need to be if you want to pay off your debt sooner than your current payoff date.

Current balance owed: The amount you still owe on the debt. Due to compounding interest, the amount you owe cannot be arrived at by simply multiplying your payment amount by the number of payments remaining. That's because the total of your payments also includes the lender's cut (interest charges). Therefore you may need to call your lender to find out the exact amount you owe if you were to pay off the debt today.
Annual interest rate: The annual interest rate you are being charged for the debt. This is a percentage the lender charges you to "rent" their money. Each compounding period, your lender divides the annual percentage rate by the number of compounding periods per year, and then multiplies that result by the current amount you owe.
Current monthly payment amount: The amount of your current monthly payment, which consists of a portion that will go to the lender as "rent" (interest) and a portion that that will actually reduce the amount you owe (principal). If you want to know how much of your current payment is interest and how much is principal, please visit the Debt Payment Breakdown Calculator.
Payoff time frame goal: The number of payments you want to pay off the debt by. You can either enter the number of months into the field provided, or you can select the month and year you want to pay the debt off by. In the latter case the debt pay off calculator will automatically calculate the number of months between now and the month and year you selected.
