What’s the benefit? You can take a break from your loan payments to pay for holiday gifts, birthday gifts, pay off credit card debt, a sudden emergency – whatever your need may be for that particular month.
Skip Pay allows you to keep your good standing at Eagle and skip one loan payment. The payment is then added to the end of your loan term. You are eligible once you've made at least 12 months of consecutive on-time payments.
How does it work? Just choose the qualified loan you would like to skip, notify us prior to the due date, pay the $50 service charge and pay one less bill. Loan types that qualify are:
- Auto (closed-end)
- Personal Watercraft
- Personal Loans
What are the details? Using the Skip Pay service does not change your monthly payment amount, but it does extend the loan’s term. Interest continues to accrue on the loan balance during the Skip Pay period through the last payment. Certain restrictions may apply. Credit cards, real estate loans, home equity lines of credit (HELOCs), lines of credit (LOCs), certificate- or share-secured loans, and open-end auto loans are not eligible for Skip Pay. 12 months of consecutive on-time payments must be made to be eligible. One payment is equal to the total of one month’s payment on one loan. Weekly is equal to four payments, and semi-monthly or bi-weekly is equal to two payments. Loans with automatic payments still qualify. The payments for that month will remain in your savings or checking account. Limit two Skip Payments per twelve-month period (cannot be consecutive), on each qualified loan. See Service Pricing schedule for current fees applied.
Why does Eagle offer this to its members? This is just one of the many perks of belonging to a credit union. We have more flexibility in what we can offer our membership than traditional banks – it’s a big differentiator for us. And why not offer members a little break once in a while? After all, we’re members too.
