Payments

When are my payments due?
Your payment due date was established when you originated your loan. It is stated in your contract. Some borrowers have due dates other than the first of the month, so it is a good idea to look at your note to see which day your payment is due.

Is it possible to change my current due date?
A change in the due date can only be done once in the life of the loan. The first step is to complete and submit a written form to:
Attn: Customer Service
First National Bank of America
PO Box 980
East Lansing, MI 48826
The loan must be current before any changes can be made. There is a one-time charge collected before changing your due date for the interest between your old due date and your new due date. CLICK HERE to Email a request to change your due date.
Please be sure to include your account number.

How do I change my address?
Any address changes must be made in writing. An address change cannot be made over the telephone for security purposes. To change your address either submit a written request with the new address with your next payment or mark on the left corner of the invoice return envelope marked: “Please note address change”. CLICK HERE to print a copy of a “change of address request form” or CLICK HERE to email your request.
Please be sure to include:
1. Your Account Number

Will you accept less than the total amount due?
Generally it is not our policy to accept partial payments without prior arrangements. Rather than making a partial payment, please call (800)642-4578 to speak to a customer counselor. We may have a program available to you that will permit a period of delay or forbearance.

Do I have a “grace period”?
Although payments are considered past due if not received by the due date, most notes provide a period of time after the due date for payments to be received before a late charge is assessed. Grace periods and late fees can only be charged according to the terms of your note. To avoid the risk of damage to your credit or the assessment of a late charge, it is recommended that every effort be made to ensure your payment is received by the due date.  making payment consistently during the grace period is still costing you even though a late charge is not assessed.  Payments on or before the due date will assure that the loan will properly amortize as we collect all unpaid accrued interest before the loan principal is reduced.  Paying during the grace period means more interest will be paid and the principal reduction will be less.

How much time should I allow for my payment to reach First National Bank of America?
It is a good idea to allow seven to ten days for receipt of payment, particularly during holidays when mail volumes are heavy. If you don’t feel your payment will reach our office in time, please call (800)642-4578 to ask about other more immediate payment options.
To avoid a late payment, First National offers an Automatic Payment option that will make your payment through a withdrawal from the bank account of your choice. Contact our customer service department for more information.
