Lump Sum

Lump Sum

A payment that is made all at once and in full, as opposed to being distributed through equally-timed installments. A lump sum can also be used to describe the amount borrowed for a loan (e.g., personal loan, auto loan, student loan, mortgage), which is then paid back to the lender through monthly installments.
