Take a Break – Skip Your Next Loan Payment with TEGFCU Skip-a-Pay!

Ever wish you could hit “pause“ on your monthly loan payments? You can!

Take advantage of TEGFCU’s Skip-a-Pay to free up your cash flow and gain flexibility. You can take a break from your monthly loan payment on your eligible credit union loan(s) for a small fee.

At times, financial stress can leave people strapped for cash. Instead of using credit cards for everyday expenses and facing steep interest rates, there’s a potential alternative: postponing your monthly loan payment. This may free up the funds you need to prevent you from ending the month in the red.

The TEGFCU Skip-a-Pay is offered year-round
and features

FLEXIBILITY: This program allows you to skip a payment when needed. It is offered to eligible members with no penalties, late fees, or adverse effects on your credit.

You must have an eligible loan type and be approved for the “Skip-a-Pay” program. It’s easy to do with digital banking. Not sure? Please contact a TEG Federal Credit Union representative with your member number handy and let us know which loan payment(s) (loan ID) you want to skip. We will review your loan and confirm that it meets the skip-a-pay requirements.

*This offer is extended based on creditworthiness. Participation in the Skip-A-Pay program cannot have more than 12 skips during the life of the loan for each qualifying loan product. Offer participation may be adjusted or revoked at any time. See credit union for details.

By submitting a Skip-a-pay request, you authorize TEGFCU to advance your loan due date by one month on the loan and acknowledge that this may extend the maturity date of your loan. Requests will be processed by the end of the next business day and are subject to approval. The credit union is informally permitting you to defer payment for the month indicated above. When processed, a $35 non-refundable fee will be withdrawn from your TEGFCU account for each loan you choose to skip a payment. The processing fee cannot be rolled into the loan(s) balance. Skip-a-pay election form MUST be received 7 business days before your payment due date in the month you wish to skip to ensure the payment is skipped. Interest will continue to accrue on your loan during the month you skip your payment. If you purchased GAP coverage with your auto loan, we are hereby notifying you that GAP coverage does not allow for any extensions during the life of the loan. If you take extensions, including “skip-a-pays,” the missed payments will be deducted from the amount you will receive if you file a claim. Life, disability, and involuntary unemployment insurance may be affected. For weekly, bi-weekly, or semi-monthly payments, the loan will be advanced 4 weeks.
