Loan Payment Q&A

    If you have a Patelco mortgage or HELOC and want to close it, you can easily pay off your loan within online banking (after which we’ll close it). You can also pay down your HELOC to a zero balance and keep it open. Simply log in and hover over Transfer & Pay in the main menu, and then tap or click on Mortgage Payoff. Then select the account you’d like to make a payment from and the loan account you’d like to pay off. (If the account is a HELOC, we’ll also show an option for paying it down to zero, keeping it open, versus paying it off and closing the account.)
    To pay off any other loan types, please visit a branch or call us at 800.358.8228.
