Hi everyone, I saw something online that said if you have a 30 year mortgage and make a half a payment every 2 weeks, rather than a full payment every month, you could pay off your mortgage about 10 years earlier. Is this true? I can’t figure out that math.

Werewolfdadt1_j6oizxe wroteYes but only because you make an additional payment per year, since there are 52 weeks in a year (52/4=13 payments instead of 12)
