How do I make payments?
To help make repaying your loan as simple as possible, during the loan application process we requested that you select an automated method to repay your loan, Automated Clearing House (ACH) or Remotely Created Check (RCC) for customers who are not covered by the Military Lending Act. In addition, you can arrange to pay by other accepted method. If you are enrolled in one of the auto-pay options, all you need to do to ensure your payment is applied to your account each month is make sure there are sufficient funds in your account to cover the installment amount on your installment date.
Automated Clearing House (ACH)
We electronically debit your bank account for the amount you owe on your due dates from the bank account information you provide.
Remotely Created Check (RCC)
Remotely created checks are paper checks that you authorize us to print on your behalf utilizing the bank account information you provide.
