They also allow early loan repayment and do not have fees or pre-payment penalties. They also offer a loan protection plan as insurance (optional) to help cover your payments in the event of a job loss, death or illness. Note there is an NSF fee ($50) if there is not enough funds to cover the payment on the due date and this would be in addition to any NSF fee that your bank might charge.
