Customers with an established deposit account or Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) account will still be able to pay the required fees via those accounts. In addition, customers will be able to file forms that do not require a fee payment.
You may file an Allegation of Use ONLY

However, the applicant may file one "insurance" extension request with the SOU, or afterwards, in the limited situation where time remains in the existing six-month period in which the SOU was filed.
