Frequently Asked Questions
If you recently applied for dealer financing or refinanced your vehicle, your application was forwarded to Flagship Credit Acceptance so we could evaluate whether, and on what terms, we would purchase a finance agreement from the dealer or refinance your current contract. Flagship uses credit, income, and vehicle information in making our determination.
Every month we report transactional information on your account to consumer reporting agencies. That information includes, but is not limited to, personally identifying information, contract date, terms, payment amount, and the status of the account for that month.
We report monthly, in the first week following the end of the month. Flagship does not control the time each consumer reporting agency takes to update its records, but typically that occurs within 5 days of receiving our report.
Flagship reports monthly in the first week following the end of the month. We report the status of your loan as the last night of the month minus the number of days from your latest statement due date. For example:
- If your loan is due on July 5, 2020, and the scheduled payment amount has not been made by July 31, 2020, the loan will be marked paid as agreed because the loan is less than 30 days past due.
- If your loan is due on June 25, 2020, and the scheduled payment amount has not been made by July 31, 2020, the loan will be reported as 30 days past due.
Flagship reports monthly in the first week following the end of the month. Flagship reports the loan as a repossession, which is considered negative. There are two kinds of repossessions. One is voluntary, when the customer requests to turn in the vehicle. The other is when Flagship determines and advises the customer with notice that the vehicle will be repossessed.
Flagship reports monthly during the first week following the end of the month. Flagship reports the loan as repossession until it is redeemed. Once redeemed, the loan will be reported at the end of the month with the account status calculated for that month.
Flagship reports monthly in the first week following the end of the month. Flagship does not control the time each consumer reporting agency takes to update its records, but typically that occurs within 5 days of receiving our report. A loan that is paid in full will reflect a zero balance and a paid or closed date. While not typically stated on a report, it is common that a zero balance on an installment loan is noted as paid.
Flagship may have agreed to a settlement with you as our customer to pay less than the final total balance due. We report “paid in full for less than full balance” to the credit bureaus to indicate our settlement and that the loan has been paid in full.
Yes, we are still reporting. Depending on the date of the report your customer is viewing, it could be the last month we’ve reported. For example, in early July, the report may reflect the last update as of June. If your customer disagrees with what is being reported, they can send an email explaining their concern to email@example.com. They will receive a letter in response from the Flagship Credit Acceptance team. Your customer’s email should include their loan number and they may attach any relevant supporting information.
Please call us at 1-800-900-5150 and have the following information available:
- Insurance agency name
- Insurance agent name/contact name
- Insurance agent phone number, and

Borrowers remain responsible for making monthly payments until the loan is paid in full. If a total loss has occurred, please call us at 1-800-900-5150 to provide your complete insurance information. We can then begin working toward a final settlement with your insurance company. You will need to provide us with your insurance policy number, date of loss, settlement amount, adjustor name, and contact information. You may also have your insurance adjustor contact us on your behalf. After your insurance pays the settlement, you will be responsible for any remaining balance. If you have GAP or other debt protection coverage, we’ll provide the information needed to file the necessary claims.

Because every state has its own title procedure, please refer to your local Department of Motor Vehicles’ website. To help explain some of the methods your state may use to release a lien, we’ve outlined a few definitions for reference:
- Paper Title: Paper titles are physical titles. Shortly after purchasing your vehicle, that title may have been mailed to you or to Flagship Credit Acceptance, depending on your state’s procedures.
- Lien Card/Lien Release: If you live in a state where the title was mailed to you directly at the time of purchase, Flagship Credit Acceptance will release the lien via a Lien Card or Lien Release letter at the time of payoff. Once you receive that card/letter, present it and the title to your local DMV office to remove our lien from the title.
- Electronic Record: Some states do not print a title until after the account is paid in full. Flagship Credit Acceptance will send a lien release as directed by you, the customer. Once you receive the lien release, present it to your local DMV office to produce the new title.
- Electronic Title: Some states no longer use a paper title process. Instead, the lien is filed electronically, and Flagship Credit Acceptance is notified of the lien electronically. Upon payoff, Flagship Credit Acceptance will notify these states of the lien release. Upon notification, some states will immediately release a paper title. Other states do not require the customer hold a physical paper title. Should you require one, you will have to request it from the state.
Before the certificate of title or lien satisfaction can be mailed, the payoff must be posted to your account and the account must be fully satisfied. Once these terms are met, the certificate of title or lien satisfaction will be sent to the authorized party – the person or entity that paid off the loan – in accordance with specific state regulations.

Flagship’s servicing fees may be incurred during the life of the contract due to events such as a late payment or a returned check. These service fees are updated in accordance with applicable state laws and regulations, and in most cases won’t result in any changes to your servicing fees. In some instances, there may be a change in certain servicing fees such as a late charge or returned check charge. Please see the terms of your contract for additional information.
The number of days past due before a late fee is charged depends on the state where you live and the terms of your agreement. For example, under a particular state’s law, if a payment is due on the 5th of each month, it must be received by the 12th to avoid a late fee, while another state may allow more or less time. Keep in mind that interest continues to accrue on your principal balance, including the past due amount. All details specific to your account may be found under your Retail Installment Contract or Security Note.
Please check your contract to determine the number of days you have before a late charge is assessed. Keep in mind that payments are required by the due date listed in your contract. Interest charges accrue on your balance, including any past due principal amounts, and will be applied to your account each day, which will increase the total amount paid on your contract.
Any unpaid late fees will remain on your account and will result in an additional amount due at the end of your loan term. Late fees do not accrue interest.
Your payment is first applied to accrued interest and principal, and then to late fees. In this case, your payment wasn’t enough to satisfy both the accrued interest and principal, and the late fee due. This may be because you paid one or more payments late, causing additional interest to accrue. Please note: late fees do not accrue interest.
Once we receive your payment you will receive a confirmation number. If you fail to receive a confirmation number, do not attempt to process your payment again, as it may result in duplicate payments being deducted from your account. If you have any issues making a payment online, please call us at 1-800-900-5150.
Payments made before 8 pm EST – including overnight payments and payments made via certified mail – will generally post to your account within one to three days after they are received, excluding weekends and holidays.

A simple interest loan accrues, or adds interest daily for the length of the loan. Interest is based on the remaining principal, also known as the amount still owed, the interest rate, and number of days in the year. As the principal is paid down, the amount of monthly interest paid also decreases.
