Use this tool to calculate your estimated loan repayments and total interest.

### How the Nationwide Loan Calculator Works:

The Nationwide Loan Calculator helps you estimate your monthly loan payments. To use the calculator:

- Enter the loan amount you wish to borrow in dollars.
- Enter the annual interest rate as a percentage. This should be the interest rate provided by your lender, divided by 12 for monthly calculation.
- Enter the loan term in years. This is the duration over which you intend to pay back the loan.
- Click the “Calculate” button to see your estimated monthly payment.

### Calculation Explanation:

The calculator uses the following formula to compute the monthly payment:

Monthly Payment = (Loan Amount * Monthly Interest Rate) / (1 – (1 + Monthly Interest Rate)^(-Loan Term in Months))

The monthly interest rate is the annual interest rate divided by 12, and the loan term in months is the loan term in years multiplied by 12.

### Limitations:

This calculator provides an estimate for informational purposes only. The actual monthly payment may differ due to changes in interest rates, loan terms, or additional fees and charges that are not included in this calculation. Always consult with a financial advisor or lender for precise loan details.
