Keep Calm and Skip-a-Pay!
Skip-A-Pay is an option that allows you to skip your monthly payments for just $25. This will free up funds that you can use towards another payment, unexpected occurrences, birthday gifts or whatever you want.
- Available to use once a year
- Available on most loans
- Loans must be open for at least 12 months
Here are some important points to consider before you decide to skip a payment:
- Breathing Room.
During an expensive time of year, you might not make it through the month without resorting to swiping your credit card – and paying high interest on every purchase you make. By skipping a large bill payment, you’ll free up some cash for your daily expenses so that you don’t finish the month in the red.
- Longer Loan Term.
Skipping a payment means lengthening the life of your loan. You are essentially moving this month’s payment to the end of the loan.
- Accrued Interest.
While you won’t be racking up credit card bills with high-interest rates this month, you will be billed for interest on the skipped payment. You will need to pay that interest at the end of the loan term.
