Payoff Quotes

We have several convenient options to obtain loan payoff information:

If you are looking for loan payoff information for specific loans, going through your online account will be the quickest and easiest way to retrieve a payoff quote.

To locate loan payoff information in your online account, you will need to login then click on "Loan Details" in the navigation. From here, select the loan that you would like to view. As shown in the example image below, you will see an "Online" and "By U.S. Mail" payoff quote available for that loan. If you click on the info icon, additional information about how those numbers are calculated will be explained.

The U.S. Mail payoff amount includes an additional 10 days of estimated interest accrual, because interest accrues daily and you are responsible for interest accrued until the final payment is received.

If you mail your payment and it takes less than 10 days to reach us, you'll be refunded anything above the final payoff amount. If it takes 10 days or more to reach us, you may owe more due to interest accrual.

How to Submit a Payoff Payment

After obtaining your payoff quote, the next step is to submit a payment to Edfinancial via one of the following methods:

Log into your online account and select the "Custom Pay" dropdown button. If you want to pay off all your loans select "Auto Allocate", and sum up the Current Balance for all your loans for the payment amount. If you want to pay off specific loans, select "Specify for Each Loan" and fill in the Current Balance amount for each loan you want to pay off.

If you need to post-date your online pay off payment, it is recommended that you wait until the day you are able to submit the payment to prevent any daily interest accrual on each loan from leaving a small remainder on your account.

If you have Auto Pay set up, your payoff payment must post 3 business days prior to the next scheduled payment draft date in order to prevent the payment from being drafted.

You can mail a check or money order to our payment address to pay your account in full.

Loan Payoff FAQs

After your loan reaches a zero balance due to a payoff payment, that loan will be reported as "Paid In Full" to the nationwide consumer reporting agencies at the end of that month.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept settlement amounts. You are responsible for repayment of the principal balance and any outstanding interest.

It depends on your due date. If your payoff payment posts at least 3 business days before your due date, we should not draft funds.

No, all credit reporting history will remain the same in accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

All payments take one to two business days to process. If the payoff payment was made on Friday before 11:59 pm ET, then it will be posted with Friday's date and the account will be paid in full as soon as the payment finishes processing.

You can find this by logging in to your online account, selecting the "Loan Details" tab, then selecting the loan that you want the expected payoff date for based on your minimum monthly payment. The "Repayment Plan", "Repayment Start Date" and "Estimated Payoff Date" will be listed in the first section of each loan detail page.
