When you select “Automatic Payment”, your payment will be drawn from your account monthly on a prescheduled day (or days), without any other action. TFS will send you reminders both one week prior to the payment being drawn, and the day prior, to ensure you know where your money is going.
When you select “Always Manual”, you will be responsible for making your payments by clicking the blue “Make Manual Payment” button every time you want to pay. This button will direct you to a “New Manual Payment” page, where you must enter the payment amount and date. Your individual authorization is mandatory for all manual payments.
