How to Skip Your Loan Payment When You Need the Extra Cash
At Credit Union West, we strive to help each of our members reach their financial goals. We know that the rising costs of groceries, gas, and other necessities put added strain on your finances. That’s why we offer assistance when you need it.
Skipping just one payment on your Personal, Auto, RV, Boat or Motorcycle loan can help you stay on track with your monthly budget. Our Skip-a-Pay Program lets you skip a payment on select Credit Union West loans to free up that much needed cash.
You are eligible to skip a payment if all your Credit Union West loans and accounts are current and in good standing at the time we receive your request. Your loan must be opened for more than 6 months, and you need to request a skip payment five calendar days or more before your next payment is due.
It’s important to note that there is a small Skip-a-Pay fee1 that is due at the time of processing, and interest will still accrue during the waived period. The payment you skip doesn’t disappear, either. The skipped loan payment is deferred, but will automatically extend the loan maturity date by one month.
It’s easy to use Skip-a-Pay in Mobile and Online Banking!

¹ A skip a payment fee will be processed per the Credit Union’s Fee Schedule, for each skip a payment request. You may not request two back to back skip a payments.
