We announced exciting changes to our Skip-a-pay program earlier this year, but if you missed it, read on!
- You can skip your eligible loan payments up to two times every twelve months, as long as they are not back-to back payments (for example, January and February).
- You choose the month(s) you skip your loan payment. It’s not just a holiday promotion anymore!
Skip your next monthly payment for a low processing fee of $25 when you skip your payment through e-Branch Home Banking. To take advantage of this discounted option of $25 per loan, simply log in to your e-Branch account and follow the step-by-step instructions. That’s a savings of $10 per loan when you use e-Branch!
If you do not wish to skip your payment(s) using e-Branch and take advantage of the $10 per loan discount, please fill out this form and return it to Texell. Remember, if you select this option, the processing fee is $35 per loan.
By submitting a Skip-a-pay request, you authorize Texell Credit Union to advance your loan due date by one month on the loan(s) indicated and acknowledge that this may extend the maturity date of your loan(s). You also acknowledge that this request does not change your legal obligation to the credit union, that your loan agreement with the credit union provides for regular monthly payments, and that the credit union is merely informally permitting you to defer payment for the month(s) indicated. Interest will continue to accrue on the unpaid balance during the month you skip a payment. A $25 processing fee for Skip-a-pays completed through e-Branch Home Banking or a $35 processing fee for all other Skip-a-pays will be assessed for each loan you choose to skip a payment, and when payments resume, unpaid interest will be collected first. The processing fee is non-refundable and must be paid 10 days prior to the loan(s) due date and cannot be rolled into the loan(s) balance. You acknowledge that Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) contracts only allow for one (1) skipped payment or loan extension over the life of the loan. Any additional skipped or extended payments will be deducted from the amount paid if a GAP claim is made. Holiday, Credit Builder, Yes!, Teacher, Employer, Home Equity, Home Improvement, Land, Mortgage, One-Time Payment, Fresh Start, Lines of Credit, Credit Cards and loans 15 or more days delinquent are not eligible for Skip-a-pay. Loans that have been 30 days past due within the last year are not eligible for Skip-a-pay. Loan payments must have been on time during the 3 months preceding this request and all accounts at the credit union must be in good standing. If approved, your regular monthly payment schedule will resume immediately following the month you indicate on your request form. No more than two, non-consecutive monthly payments may be skipped in a twelve-month period.
