Hear from the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA)- 


* You must be a member in good standing to participate in the Skip-A-Payment program. Loan must be opened for 12 months, with no late payments in the last three (3) months. A late payment is considered over the 10-day grace-period with a late fee assessed to the account. Mortgage, Home Equity, Home Equity Line of Credit, Credit Cards, Line of Credit/Overdraft Protection loans are not eligible for the Skip-A-Payment program. If your loan payment is made via ACH from another Financial institution, your payments will advance one month.The Skip-A-Payment must be approved 3 business days prior to the ACH transaction. By participating in the Skip-A-Payment program, you acknowledge that the interest on your loan will continue to accrue during the deferral period. The net effect of the skipped payment(s) will cause additional interest that will be applied to your next payment. Additionally, your loan may be extended one or more payments over its life to accommodate this deferral. You may skip up to two monthly payments per loan per year. However, there must be 6 consecutive months between skipped payments. The expiration dates of Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) and/or Debt Cancellation products will not be extended. All other terms of your original loan agreement will remain the same.  A Skip-A-Payment Form must be completed for each payment skipped. Offer may change at any time without notice.

An example of payment terms are as follows: an amount financed of $2,500 with an APR for 2.99% and a term of 24 months would have a monthly payment of $107.44..
