Blog | Keeping Summer Plans Afloat

Schools out suns up. Summer is here, which means it is time to travel and have fun. With beach trips, amusement park days, trips to the zoo, and cooling off at the movie theatre, you might see a dip in your account funds.

How can you get summer ready last minute? 

A Personal or Small-Dollar loan is always an option. However, if you are not eager to add another monthly payment, you can always try out a Skip-a-Payment.

By skipping your monthly loan payment, you can use the money typically used for your loan and use it for other expenses.

Things to keep in mind when skipping a payment:
  • Eligible loans can use a Skip-a-Payment up to five times with a maximum of two skips in a rolling twelve months. Skips cannot be consecutive. You could skip your loan payment this summer and again during the holidays if needed!
  • Skipping a payment will push your current payment back, extending the life of your loan.
  • You can skip multiple loans during the same month as long as they are eligible for a Skip-a-Payment. For instance, if you have two eligible auto loans, you can skip both payments for the month.
  • The Skip-a-Payment will defer the total monthly payment if your loan is paid once a month, bi-weekly, or otherwise.
Getting Started:
  1. Fill out the Skip-a-Payment form onlinein person, or by calling us at 800-375-3674.
