*TELEPHONE NUMBER NOTICE:
If you have provided or provide a telephone number (wireless or landline) as a contact number, we may use that number to service your account,
including sending text messages, calling using an automated dialer, or calling using an artificial voice or a pre-recorded message.
If you do not wish to receive such calls, we ask that you please notify the Compliance Department as indicated above although you may
choose another method of notification.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PAYMENTS:
When making your payments please be aware of the following:
Payments are required to be made by the due date listed in your contract and payments are considered past due if not received
by the due date, even if your contract contains a “grace period.” If your contract permits a late fee, a “grace period” only
pertains to when a late fee will be assessed. Please refer to your contract to see if your account has a late fee provision and
a “grace period.”
For simple interest contracts, a portion of your monthly payment is applied towards the amount of the obligation – the principal
– and a portion of the payment is applied towards paying the finance charge – the interest. A greater percentage of your monthly
payment is applied to interest early in the life of the contract, and a greater percentage is applied to the principal at the end.
Thus, the principal balance decreases slowly at first and more quickly closer to the end of the loan term. A portion of your payment
may also be applied to late fees that have accrued. To learn how and in what order your payments are applied, please contact the
Compliance Department as indicated above
Since interest charges will accrue daily on past due amounts for simple interest contracts, the actual amount of finance charge
and the actual amount of your final payment will depend on your payment record.
If you make every payment on the due date,
you will pay off the contract in the time frame described in the contract.
However, if you make late payments, you will pay more
finance charge (e.g., interest) and you will have a balance remaining after your final scheduled payment.
If you make payments before the due date, you will pay less finance charge.
Payment extension(s) will result in a longer repayment period than originally scheduled. A payment extension(s) will result in
more interest accruing on your account and a higher principal balance than if payments were made as originally scheduled in your
Interest will continue to accrue during the extension period and your payment(s) immediately following the
extension period will be disproportionately allocated to the unpaid interest if not all to unpaid interest.
If you pay ahead, the most we will move your next due date is 3 months regardless of the amount paid. Any amount in
excess of the interest due (and applicable fees that are due and payable, if any) will be applied to principal.
If you pay ahead and a payment is not due this month, be aware that interest is still accruing.
If you would like to pay the interest, you should still make a payment. You may call us to find out how much interest has accrued.
If a payment is returned due to insufficient funds or uncollected funds, First Investors may choose to resubmit the payment a second
time if the payment is eligible for resubmission. Resubmission may occur up to 7 days after the original payment date.
By sending us a check for payment, you authorize us to use information from your check to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your
account. In certain circumstances, such as for technical or processing reasons, we may process your payment as a check transaction.
When we use information from your check to make an
electronic fund transfer
, funds may be withdrawn from your
as soon as the same day we receive your payment, and you will not receive your check back from your bank.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
Loan approval is not guaranteed and subject to state law and satisfaction of underwriting requirements.
Not available in all states. APR means annual percentage rate. Minimum APR offered is 8.25% (subject to change). You must refinance the full payoff amount
of your existing contract subject to our minimum loan amount of $8,000 (higher in some states) and our maximum loan amount of $40,000.00.
We do not offer cash-back refinancing. The vehicle that you are refinancing must not be older than 8 years and must be an eligible make
and model without excessive mileage. Ineligible collateral includes, but is not limited to, discontinued makes and models, one ton trucks,
business use vehicles, salvage or reconditioned titles or vehicles subject to a second lien. All loans are fixed, simple interest loans.
We do not refinance existing loans that are serviced by First Investors Servicing Corporation. If approved, lower monthly payment may
result from a lower interest rate, a longer term or both. Remaining term may be extended for an even lower monthly
payment; however, if you choose to increase the term, the overall cost of your new loan may be higher than without refinancing
(i.e., more interest and extra payments). You may also be able to extend your first payment; however extending your first payment
beyond 30 days will result in more interest paid. First payment may not be extended beyond 30 days in IL, MD or NJ.
Depending on your state of residence, a loan origination fee may apply if approved and funded. Title filing fees apply
if approved and funded. Notary fee may be required. Savings claims based on monthly payment savings alone as compared to existing loan.
Shortening the term or purchasing a voluntary debt cancellation waiver will reduce monthly payment reduction and increasing the term for
greater monthly savings will result in more interest paid. Voluntary debt cancellation waiver is not available in all states. A general
refinance example is: Original loan of $23,000 (current balance $20,563), 16.65%, 60 of 72 months remaining, payments of $507/month
refinanced at $20,712 (fees included), 14.15%/14.18% APR, 60 month term, payments of $484/month. Your terms and monthly savings may be
different. If you received a pre-screened firm offer of credit, please refer to your mailer for terms and conditions
of your firm offer.
By opting in to receive text messages, you will receive account notifications. Message and data rates may apply. You may opt out at any
time by texting stop to 55185 or 78861. By sending stop to 55185 or 78861, you agree to one additional confirmation message stating that

A consumer report may be ordered on you in connection with your application for credit. If you ask, we will tell you whether or not
one was ordered and if one was, the name and address of the consumer reporting agency that provided it. Subsequent consumer reports
may be requested or used in connection with an update, renewal or extension of the credit applied for without further notice to you.
MONTHLY SAVINGS/ADDITIONAL INTEREST FOR LONGER TERMS AND EXTENDED FIRST PAYMENTS/SIMPLE INTEREST CONTRACTS:
Savings claims based on monthly payment savings alone. If approved, lower monthly payment may result from a lower interest rate,
a longer term or both. Remaining term may be extended for additional monthly savings; however, extending the term
or the first payment beyond 30 days will increase the total interest paid. Shortening the term or purchasing a voluntary
debt cancellation waiver will reduce monthly payment reduction and increasing the term for greater monthly savings will result in more
A reduced monthly payment does not mean that you will pay less overall with a new loan.
If you choose to extend the new term from your remaining term for more monthly savings, you will pay
more in interest and have more monthly payments which will impact any savings from a reduced monthly payment.
Your contract will be a simple interest contract, if approved. With a simple interest contract, finance charges (e.g., interest)
are calculated based on the unpaid principal balance of the contract. As each payment is made, the payment amount is applied toward
the finance charges that have accrued since the last payment was received. The remaining portion of the payment is applied in accordance
with the terms of your contract. The timing of your payments will vary the finance charges you owe.
Since finance charges will accrue daily for simple interest contracts, the actual amount of finance charge
and the actual amount of your final payment will depend on your payment record.
If you make every payment on the due date, you will pay off the contract in the time frame and amount described in your contract.
If you make your payments before the due date, you will pay less in finance charges. The later you make your payments after
they are due, you will pay more in finance charges. This illustrates the importance of making payments on time.
LOAN ORIGINATION FEES:
Title filing/lien transfer fees apply. Notary fee may be required.
Depending on your state of residence, a loan origination fee may apply.
RELAX FOR A MONTH:
Refers to the fact that the first monthly payment on your new auto loan will be due 30 to 45 days after the contract date
(not the funding date), and the contract date will be 0 to 30 days after the most recent monthly due date of your existing loan.
The actual number of days you will not have a scheduled monthly payment due will vary depending on the terms of your existing loan,
your payments on the existing loan, and applicable state law. Interest will accrue on your existing loan until it is paid in full and
interest will accrue on your new loan beginning on the date the loan is funded. Extending the first payment from 30 to 45 days will
result in additional interest being paid. First payment may not be extended beyond 30 days in IL, MD or NJ. In states where first
payment may be extended beyond 30 days, please let us know if you do not want to extend the first payment. Until your loan is approved
and funded, it is important that you continue to timely make scheduled payments on your existing loan.
If you are a service member on active duty, prior to seeking a refinance of your existing contract, please consult with your legal
advisor regarding the loss of any benefits you are entitled to under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act or applicable state law.
