Set up automatic payments in GR PayIt. You can set up monthly or weekly recurring payment which will be deducted from your bank account or charged to your debit/credit card. Making your loan payment using GR PayIt means no added processing fees!
If your check is returned for non-sufficient funds (NSF) you'll be responsible to pay your bank charges and an additional $30 returned fee to the City.
You can make additional principal payments on your loan using GR PayIt using the scheduled payment option. There is no penalty when making additional principal payments on your loan.
