We all have times where money is really tight. That’s when BSCU’s Skip-a-Payment program* can help our members who have loans booked with us.

You can skip your monthly loan payment for a $25 fee. A BSCU loan payment can be skipped up to twice within a 12-month period, and they can be consecutive months.

How to Skip-a-Payment

Complete the skip-a-payment application. The application must be signed by all applicants (names on the loan) and submitted to BSCU prior to requested skip date.

The $25 fee is due at the time of application.

Important Information About Your Payments:

  • If your loan payment is on automatic payment through BSCU, we will arrange the skip for you in the month selected.
  • If you use BSCU’s Bill Pay or Bill Pay from another financial institution, you’ll need to log into Bill Pay to stop and restart the payment yourself. Don’t forget to turn it back on after your skip!
