If your plan begins in the month of January, your final payment will be due in the month of December of the fifth year. If the payments begin in the month of March, the final payment will be due in the month of February in the fifth year, and so forth. Likewise, if your plan term is 36 months, your payments will be completed after three years, etc.

If you earn less, your commitment period will be shortened to 36 months. Applicable commitment periods are set by federal law in accordance with 11 U.S.C. §1325 (Confirmation of Plan).
