St. Thomas Credit Union encourages members to make responsible financial decisions, but we also know there are times in life when it can be a challenge to make your monthly loan payment. Whether this reason is a sudden emergency, or as we get into the holidays, a need to purchase gifts for your loved ones, STCU has started a Skip-a-Pay program to make these troubling times easier on you.
With the STCU Skip-a-Pay program, you can skip one monthly, or two bi-weekly payments, once every twelve rolling months on a qualifying loan*. If you have more than one qualifying loan, you may submit a request to skip-a-pay on each loan.
When you skip a payment, your loan term will be extended by one month. This can increase the total interest you pay over the life of the loan. Interest will continue to accrue on your unpaid balance on a daily basis resulting in a greater amount of your next scheduled payment to be applied toward interest. By skipping a payment(s) the benefit from disability, life, and/or Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) may be reduced by the amount of the payment skipped.
To skip your payment you should complete the Skip-a-Payment Agreement. This form must be returned to us at least five (5) days before your payment is due, but no more than thirty (30) days prior to the due date. Please note that the borrower and the co-borrower or guarantor (if applicable) MUST sign the form. The processing fee for the Skip-a-Pay is $35.00. This fee must be paid before any modification to the loan will be made. A fee must be paid for each loan that you are applying to skip a payment on. If the Skip-a-Pay request is not approved, the $35 fee will be refunded to you. Please read the form carefully before returning it, as it will explain any other important information you will need to know.
