If your VSAC loan is in default, please send your payments to:
PO Box 2000
Winooski VT 05404
Each payment is prorated (or distributed) based on the amount due for each loan group. Your payment is first applied to pay any interest that has accumulated since your last payment*. Once the interest is satisfied, the rest is used to pay down your principal. If your payment is late, the funds will be applied to the most past due loan group(s) first.
To estimate how much loan interest has accumulated since your last payment, use this calculation:
(Interest Rate x Current Principal Balance/365.25) X (# of days since last payment)
Note: *Loans in a collection status are subject to a fee. When a payment is applied to a collection account, fees are paid first, then interest and then principal. If you want a collection payment applied to just one specific loan in collections, please contact the collections department after processing your payment.
You can schedule recurring payments through LoanPAY™ in addition to your Elect Pay debits. If you wish to cancel your Elect Pay automatic debits, you must contact us to make this request. Once Elect Pay is cancelled, you'll no longer receive the 0.25% interest rate reduction and will not have the ability to re-enroll in this program in the future.
If you send more than the amount due each month, the extra funds are first applied to any outstanding interest and the remaining amount goes directly toward paying down your principal.
And, each time you satisfy a monthly payment amount, we'll automatically advance your next payment due one month. If you don’t want your due date to advance, you can include a note with your payment or you can contact us. However, you can still send a payment every month, even if your due date advances and you receive a billing statement that shows $0.00 due. Continuing to pay, even when you aren’t due, will save you money in the long run!
No, we cannot accept credit card payments. You'll need to enter the bank routing and bank account number associated with a checking or savings account. You can then save this bank account information in order to complete future payment transactions quickly.
If you're sending your payment through the mail, you can include a note with your payment as to how you'd like the extra applied.
