Negative amortization

• A loan repayment schedule in which the outstanding principal balance of the loan increases, rather than amortizing, because the scheduled monthly payments do not cover the full amount required to amortize the loan. The unpaid interest is added to the outstanding principal, to be repaid later.

• Is the increment to principal over time. This feature reflects the inadequacy of the periodic payment to service both principal and interest. It usually is the result of the addition of interest to the outstanding loan balance.
