Requests for EFT and RCC are sent at the beginning of each month and the posting date to your account varies according to your bank or financial institution (typically between the 1st and the 5th of each month). You cannot request a specific date for your EFT or RCC to pull.

 If your payment is unsuccessful due to insufficient or unavailable funds, you will be mailed a past due notice.

Payment received will be applied first to the $20 administrative fee, and then the remaining amount of the payment will be applied to the enrollment fee. Failure to pay both the administrative fee and the outstanding enrollment fee within 30 days of the account's paid-through date will result in disenrollment and a 12-month lockout from the program.
