AS 06.20.285. Open-End Loans.

(a) A licensee may make open-end loans not exceeding an aggregate total of $25,000 and may contract for and receive interest on open-end loans as provided in AS 06.20.230 , and for other charges permitted under this chapter. Interest on open-end loans may be computed daily or monthly on the unpaid principal balance or the average unpaid principal balance if the interest charged as a result of these computations does not exceed the rates stated in AS 06.20.230 when the interest is computed according to the interest-bearing or actuarial method.

(b) The billing cycle for open-end loans is monthly, and the unpaid principal balance on a certain day is computed by adding to the balance unpaid on the beginning of that day, or the average unpaid daily balance for that billing cycle, all advances and other permissible amounts charged to the borrower and deducting all payments and other credits made or received that day.

(c) A licensee may secure the payment of an open-end loan in the same manner as other loans under this chapter may be secured.

(d) The licensee shall deliver a copy of the open-end loan agreement to the borrower at the time the open-end loan account is opened. The open-end loan agreement must contain the name and address of the licensee and the borrower and must contain disclosures of finance charges and agreed terms as may be required by regulations adopted by the department and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

(e) At the end of each billing cycle in which there is an outstanding balance in the account for which a finance charge is imposed, the licensee shall deliver to the borrower a statement in the form required by regulations adopted by the department and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. This subsection does not apply to accounts that the licensee considers uncollectible or for which an action to collect past due amounts has been filed.
