What is the AutoPay/EFT Discount? How can I get it?

The AutoPay/EFT Discount is a 0.25% interest rate discount for making recurring monthly payments via electronic fund transfer (EFT) from a bank account. When applied your rate will be decreased by 0.25%. If, however, you stop making automatic payments via EFT, then your rate will increase by 0.25%. The 0.25% AutoPay/EFT Discount will not reduce the monthly payment; instead, the discount is applied to the principal to help pay the loan down faster. Rates advertised on this site typically include the 0.25% AutoPay/EFT Discount. However, if you stop making automatic payments or if Laurel Road cancels your automatic payments due to returned payment, delinquency, or forbearance, or otherwise, then your rates will go back to their regular levels. Discount not available during periods of deferment when no payment is required. In your welcome letter, you will receive instructions on how to set up automatic payments.
