One of the benefits of a Marcus Personal Loan is the ability to change your loan payment due date. You can change your payment due date up to three times over the lifetime of your loan, giving you the flexibility to better manage your monthly payment to fit your budget.
This feature is designed to make repayment on your Marcus loan as easy as possible. In this article, we’ll cover when and why it may make sense to change your loan payment due date, and how to do so on Marcus.com.
Life is different for everyone. A full-time, salaried employee may need a different payment date then a self-employed freelancer, since her pay schedule will vary. With a Marcus Personal Loan, you can strategically organize your loan payment due date around your own schedule.
Organizing your monthly income inflows and expense outflows may help you avoid budgeting mistakes that have adverse financial effects, including overdraft fees from your personal checking account, or late payment fees with respect to other bills. (Side note: another perk of Marcus Personal Loans is that there are no late fees.) Paying bills late also may result in a late payment report to the credit bureaus, not to mention added stress.
To determine your ideal loan payment due date, start by creating a list of the dates you receive income each month and how much income you receive on those dates. Income can include various types of payments from an employer, a pension account or investment income. Then list your monthly expenses and when they are due. These expenses can include rent, utilities, your Marcus loan, any other credit obligations and any discretionary spending.
From there, align your income receipt dates and bill due dates in a way that provides you the flexibility you require and helps you avoid missed and late payments.
If you want to change your payment due date, you can always log into your account at Marcus.com to change it at www.marcus.com/us/en/personal-loans/your-loan/payments/due-date.
From there, you will be able to select your preferred due date. Make sure your changes are saved and the refreshed page shows your new payment due date and when it will take effect.
Before changing your payment due date on a Marcus loan, here are a few general guidelines to keep in mind:
Please refer to your Installment Loan Agreement for all of the rules regarding payment due date changes. You can find a copy of your loan agreement on your customer profile when you log-in to Marcus.com.
Pairing up two Marcus features – selecting your preferred payment due date and Marcus AutoPay – can be a great way to customize your loan payment due date and make payments easier. With AutoPay, you can ensure your bills are paid on time every month. By selecting your own payment due date, you can make sure the day your Marcus loan is paid on the best day for you.
