Skip a Payment for December

Spread MORE holiday joy this season!
The holidays are a perfect time to have a little extra money in your pocket.
So, why not skip a payment on your Family Savings Credit Union loan
and do just that? For a $25 skip-a-payment fee per payment skipped,
you can have the extra cash you need to make the season even brighter
for you and your family. Skip a payment, skip the holiday money stress,
relax and enjoy the season.
 
Complete the Skip-A-Payment request form and return it to your nearest branch with your
$25 fee(s) or method of payment. Remember to return the form and payment to us BEFORE your December 2021 loan payment is due.
 
Disclaimer: Offer does not apply to Real Estate Loans, Open-End Loans, Single Pay Loans, Workout Loans, Credit Builder Loans, Troubled Debt Restructured Loans, Commercial/Business Loans or Lines of Credit. By signing up to skip your payment, you authorize Family Savings CU to extend your final loan payment by one month. Interest will continue to accrue on your loan during the month you skip your payment. Loan must be current and account in good standing to qualify for this offer. All other terms and conditions of the loan(s) will remain the same. There is a $25 Skip-A-Payment fee per loan. If paying $25 fee through a transfer from a FSCU Savings or Checking Account, funds must be available over any minimum balance requirement to cover the fee at the time this form is processed. Payment protection and/or GAP Insurance may not apply to the extended loan term. No more than two payments may be skipped within a calendar year. The primary member must sign the request form. FSCU must receive your signed authorization form before your December 2021 payment(s) is due. Any loan that is less than 6 months old or has had an extension or loan modification with extension in the past 6 months does not qualify. Members who have taken a Family Savings Credit Union COVID-19 payment relief option in 2021 may not qualify for the December 2021 Skip-a-Payment promotion. If you have set up a recurring payment with Family Savings or another Financial Institution, it is your responsibility to notify them to adjust the payment date.
