What is Skip-A-Payment?
Maybe it's the holiday season and you'd like a little more cash for gifts or travel. Maybe it's vacation time, and you need a little more for the trip. DCU's Skip-A-Payment program can help you make it happen.
The Skip-A-Payment Program gives you the option to defer a monthly payment on an eligible DCU Loan until the end of the loan. We advance your payment due date and your maturity date (for example on a 48-month loan, if one payment is skipped, you make 48 payments over 49 months). It is that simple.
Loans Eligible for Skip-A-Payment
- Auto Loans
- Access Loans
- Motorcycle Loans
- Boat Loans
- Recreational Vehicle Loans
- Mobility Vehicle Loans
- Personal (Signature) Loans
- Stock-Secured Loans
How Skip-A-Payment Works
To take advantage of our Skip-A-Payment Program, print out the Skip-A-Payment Request Form (pdf), fill it out completely and return it to DCU with your $25 fee (or choose to have the fee automatically withdrawn from your DCU Account).
This program does not apply to loans during the first six (6) months of the loan agreement and you may only exercise one (1) Skip-A-Payment per calendar year/per loan with a maximum of three (3) skipped payments per loan term.
The Skip-A-Payment Program is not offered on Visa, Advantage Credit Line, Home Equity, Mortgage, or some Indirect Loans (DCU loans opened at an auto dealership).
