Money a little tight this month? We've all been there.

By following a simple process and paying a small fee, you can buy some financial breathing space.

Skip a Payment FAQs
What is Skip a Payment?
Skip A Payment program allows qualified borrowers the chance to skip up to two payments each calendar year up to a maximum of 6 skip payments during the life of the loan.

Signature loans, auto loans, boat, RV and personal property loans are eligible for the skip a payment program as long as the payment amount is not less than or equal to $25.00. Home Equity, Mortgages, and Business Loans are not eligible.
What is the fee to Skip a Payment?
There is a $25.00 fee for each skipped payment. The funds will need to be in a share account to be collected at the time the skip is processed.
How does skipping a payment affect my loan?
Skipping a payment advances your next due date to the following month. Finance charges will continue to accrue on a daily basis at the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) set forth in the loan agreement, both during and after the deferral period. This means it will result in higher total finance charges and possibly a higher total number of payments, than if made as originally scheduled. Therefore extra payment(s) may have to be made after the loan would otherwise have been paid off.
What if I make a payment through payroll deduction or ACH initiated by P1FCU?
If your loan payment is made via payroll deduction, the total monthly payment will not be applied to your loan for the month you elected to skip. If your payment is made via Electronic Funds Transfer from another financial institution initiated by P1FCU*, the request must be received at least five (5) business days before your payment is due.
*If you have a scheduled payment set up through online banking or from another financial institution or bill payment program, this payment will process unless canceled by you.
Under what circumstances would a skip payment request be denied?
The service is subject to the final approval of P1FCU. This offer does not apply to any real estate loan, business loan, or lease.

The loan must be opened a minimum of 180 days with at least 6 payments applied before it is eligible for a skip.
