Neighborhood Credit Union

Skip-A-Payment

Neighborhood Credit Union offers qualifying members the opportunity to skip one loan payment for qualifying loans.

Wouldn’t you like to skip one of your payments and use that money for something else? Luckily you can! Our Skip-A-Payment program allows you to defer one of your monthly payments and use that cash to take a vacation, buy school supplies, take care of an emergency, or anything else you want.

How does it work?

By skipping a payment, you are adding it to the end of the loan which could extend the term or maturity. Keep in mind it will still be accruing daily interest at the determined rate, and if your next payment does not cover the interest accrued, it will be taken out of each payment until satisfied. Skipped payments are processed for a period of one month at a time. (Ex: Two biweekly, two semi-monthly, or four weekly.)

What loans are included?

Auto loans
