With Skip-A-Pay, members may defer an eligible monthly loan payment and extend the original loan term. Put those funds towards holidays, vacations, gifts, or anything else the season brings. Skip-A-Pay is offered in the summer and winter. Please review our FAQ below then print out and complete the 2020 COVID19 Skip-a-Pay Agreement and mail or fax it to our offices, or pick one up the next time you stop by to visit. You can also skip a payment by logging into your online banking.

A: There is no longer a fee for skipping a payment.
Q: What do I have to do in order to participate in the Skip-A-Pay program?
A: To participate, complete a 2020 COVID19 Skip-a-Pay Agreement or process through It’s Me 247 Online Banking. The forms are also available at our offices. Allow 5 business days minimum before your payment if you are automatically set up to send a payment from a different financial institution. All other payment types must be submitted at least one business day prior to the due date.
Q: I have a co-signer/co-borrower on the loan. Do they have to sign the agreement also?
A: No, only one person needs to sign the Skip-A-Pay loan extension agreement.
Q: Does interest still accrue on the loan during this time?
A: Yes. All other terms and provisions of the original loan agreement are unchanged and remain in full effect.
Q: Do all loan types qualify for Skip-A-Pay?
A: No. Mortgage, Home Equity, Fresh Start, and Mastercard credit card loans are not eligible for this loan extension. Exceptions for Home Equity skip-a-pay’s will be made in March, April, and May 2020.
Q: Are there any other exclusions?
A: Yes, members who have been granted extensions due to extenuating circumstances within the previous 12 months are not eligible. Members must have payments up to date, including the previous month’s loan payment and the loan must be opened 7 months before a skip pay may be granted. All Arize/SPE loans in the member’s name must be up to date for any loan Skip-A-Pay approval.
