# Appendix M2 to Part 1026 — Sample Calculations of Repayment Disclosures

This version is the current regulation

The following is an example of how to calculate the minimum payment repayment estimate, the minimum payment total cost estimate, the estimated monthly payment for repayment in 36 months, the total cost estimate for repayment in 36 months, and the savings estimate for repayment in 36 months using the guidance in appendix M1 to this part where three annual percentage rates apply (where one of the rates is a promotional APR), the total outstanding balance is \$1000, and the minimum payment formula is 2 percent of the outstanding balance or \$20, whichever is greater. The following calculation is written in SAS code.

```data one;

/*

Note:

pmt01 = estimated monthly payment to repay balance in 36 months sumpmts36 = sum of payments for repayment in 36 months

month = number of months to repay total balance if making only minimum payments

pmt = minimum monthly payment

fc = monthly finance charge

sumpmts = sum of payments for minimum payments
