SECTION 22450-22467



22450.  As used in this division, "open-end credit program" means a
licensee's plan for making open-end loans pursuant to a loan
agreement that sets forth the terms and conditions governing the use
of the open-end credit program, expressly states that the loan is
made pursuant to this article, and provides that:
   (a) The borrower may use the open-end credit program to obtain
money, goods, labor, or services on credit. The licensee makes
open-end loans to the borrower for the purpose of paying money to or
at the direction of the borrower or paying obligations that the
borrower creates through use of the open-end credit program.
   (b) The amount of each advance and the charges and other permitted
costs are debited to an account.
   (c) The charges are computed from time to time on the unpaid
balances of the borrower's account, excluding from the computation
any unpaid charges other than permitted fees, costs, and expenses.
   (d) The borrower has the privilege of paying the account in full
at any time.


22451.  If an open-end credit program is not primarily for the
purpose of purchasing or leasing goods or services from the licensee,
then all credit extended through use of the program, including
transactions that involve the purchase or lease of goods or services
from the licensee, shall be subject to this division.



22452.  Subject to the written approval of the commissioner of the
licensee's plan of business for making open-end loans as not being
misleading or deceptive and subject to regulations the commissioner
may adopt with respect to open-end loans under Section 22150, a
licensee may make open-end loans pursuant to this article and may
contract for and receive thereon charges as set forth in Sections
22303, 22304, and 22308. These charges may be calculated on an amount
not exceeding the greater of:
   (a) The actual daily unpaid balances of the open-end account in
the billing cycle for which the charge is made, in which case
one-thirtieth of the monthly rate may be charged for each day the
unpaid balance is outstanding.
   (b) The average daily unpaid balance of the open-end account in
the billing cycle for which the charge is made, which is the sum of
the amount unpaid each day during that cycle divided by the number of
days in that cycle. The amount unpaid on a day is determined by
adding to any balance unpaid as of the beginning of that day all
advances and other debits and deducting all payments and other
credits made or received as of that day. The billing cycle shall be
monthly. A billing cycle is monthly if the closing date of the cycle
is the same date each month or does not vary by more than four days
from the regular date.
   This section does not apply to any open-end loan of a bona fide
principal amount of five thousand dollars ($5,000) or more as
determined in accordance with Section 22467.




22453.  The minimum monthly payment shall be determined by any of
the following:
   (a) The amount calculated by multiplying the unpaid principal
balance, after an advance and including the advance, by a percent
agreed upon by the borrower and the licensee, which shall be no less
than 2 1/2 percent. The minimum payment shall continue at the amount
determined pursuant to this paragraph until a subsequent loan advance
is made.
   (b) The amount calculated by multiplying the unpaid balance at the
end of each billing cycle by a percent agreed upon by the borrower
and the licensee, which shall be no less than 5 percent.
   (c) Any other bona fide amount agreed upon by the borrower and the
licensee which would be sufficient to pay all charges and some
principal, originally scheduled to be due by the borrower as of each
scheduled due date.
   This section does not apply to any open-end loan of a bona fide
principal amount of five thousand dollars ($5,000) or more as
determined in accordance with Section 22467.



22454.  On open-end loans, the licensee may contract for and receive
the fees, costs, and expenses permitted on other loans, including
those permitted by subdivisions (a), (b), (c), and (d) of Section
22313 and subdivision (d) of Section 22314, except that the charge
for credit insurance under Section 22314 shall be on a monthly basis

Section 22314, with respect to open-end loans, a licensee may provide
credit insurance with the borrower's consent, in a form to be
approved by the Insurance Commissioner, in an amount not in excess of
the amount of the indebtedness. For credit life or disability
insurance, the licensee may collect from the borrower an amount
established pursuant to Section 779.36 of the Insurance Code.
   (b) If life insurance is provided, and if the insured borrower
dies during the term of the loan contract, the insurance shall be
sufficient to pay the total amount due on the loan outstanding on the
date of his or her death, without any exception, reservation, or
limitation.
   (c) If disability insurance is provided, and if the insured
borrower becomes disabled during the term of the loan contract, the

subsequently become due on the loan thereafter during the period of
disability, in accordance with subdivision (d) of Section 22315,
without any exception, reservation, or limitation.
   (d) If loss-of-income insurance is provided, and if the insured
borrower becomes unemployed during the term of the loan contract, the
insurance shall be sufficient to pay all amounts attributable to the
loan balance at the time of commencement of unemployment in
accordance with subdivision (d) of Section 22321 without any
exception, reservation, or limitation.
   (e) Any credit insurance that is provided shall be in force as
soon as the loan is made or coverage is agreed upon, whichever is
later. No credit insurance written in connection with an open-end
loan shall be canceled by the lender because of delinquency of the
borrower in the making of the minimum payments thereon unless one or
more of the payments is past due for a period of 90 days or more, and
the lender shall advance to the insurer the amounts required to keep
the insurance in force during that period, which amounts may be
debited to the borrower's account.
   This section does not apply to any open-end loan of a bona fide
principal amount of ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or more as
determined in accordance with Section 22467.

fulfill the borrower's obligation to that person under the
transaction.

initial advance and any subsequent advances on the loan, and the
agreed rate of charge.



22458.  In lieu of subdivision (a) of Section 22337, with respect to
open-end loans, except in the case of an account that the licensee
deems to be uncollectible, or for which delinquency collection
procedures have been instituted, the licensee shall deliver or cause
to be delivered to the borrower, or any one thereof, for each billing
cycle at the end of which there is an outstanding balance in the
account, or to which a finance charge is imposed, a statement setting

billing cycle, the date and amount of any subsequent loan advance
during the period, the amounts and dates of crediting to the account

and subdivision (b) of Section 22337 shall not apply to a licensee
with respect to advances made through an open-end credit program.



22462.  The payment of fees for participation in an open-end credit
program, the acceptance by a borrower of the form of the licensee's
program, and the borrower's agreement to the licensee's program shall
not be deemed to be a collateral sale, purchase, or agreement within
the terms of Section 22201, 22311, or 22312.

limitation.
