If you have multiple loans, you may take advantage of the Skip-A-Pay program for each loan that qualifies. There will be a $25 processing fee per loan. Once the above request form is submitted, the member is responsible for canceling the next recurring payment on the skipped loan at least 3 days before the scheduled payment date, either through online banking or outside financial institution, depending on the funding source of your recurring loan payments.
