The first deduction may not occur on the day you selected. We will send you a confirmation letter notifying you before the first deduction occurs. Thereafter, a draft will be sent on the specific day of the month you requested account deductions.

Actual deduction from your account will occur 2 business days after the draft is sent, or longer if a holiday.
