Advantages of a Skip-A-Payment

By skipping a GNCU loan payment, you keep extra cash that can be used if you're in a pinch and need to pay for other essentials, such as utilities or groceries. That can save you time on trying to access extra cash. However, before you choose to skip a payment, read on about how the program works and other options you might have.

When to Rethink Using a Skip-A-Payment

It's important to remember that when you skip a payment on your loan, it increases the total cost of your loan, because you still incur interest when you skip a payment. That's because each time you make a fixed loan payment, a portion of that money goes toward interest, and the rest goes to the principle (or actual cost) of the loan.

In the beginning of a fixed-rate loan, the majority of your payment will pay for the interest, but as you make payments, more money goes toward the principle cost, thereby paying down your loan. When you skip a payment, you are not paying any principle or interest that month, but your loan's interest still accumulates over the life of your loan.

Security Code:

You understand by participating in the Skip-A-Payment program the current balance of the loan(s) is extended by the amount of the payment skipped. You also understand interest will continue to accrue on the balance of the loan(s) throughout the deferred payment period. You are requesting GNCU to advance the due date equal to one month's payment on each eligible loan(s) which you have indicated above. If there is more than one borrower on a loan, you acknowledge that you have informed all borrower(s) of this skipped payment.

If you have recurring automatic transfers from other financial institutions for your loan payment(s), it is your responsibility to stop the transfer and restart the transfer. Any fees assessed from your other financial institution for doing this will not be refunded by GNCU. If you have Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) on your loan(s), claim coverage only extends to the amount of the first two deferred payments for that loan. Skipping your payment does not affect your original GAP election at the time you funded your loan(s). All of your accounts with GNCU must be in good standing. A $39 participation payment will be assessed for each loan approved for the Skip-A-Payment Program.

Loans and conditions for non-eligible loans include: Right Now Loans, Personal Lines of Credit, Certificate Secured Loans, Personal Unsecured Loans with a balance of less than $1,000, Real estate secured loans (1st and 2nd mortgages, HELOCs, Land Loans), Member Business Loans, Loans with more than 120 payments remaining, Insured Loans, and Payment Saver Loans. Other restrictions may apply. A member can only skip one loan payment per loan, per year (three skip maximum over the term of the loan). Must be a member in good standing, and have no delinquency for the first 6 months of the loan term before being eligible to skip a payment. All loans with a payment extension or Skip-A-Payment program during the previous 11 months from the date of the request are not eligible. Skip-A-Payment program modifies the loan contract between GNCU and the Borrower(s) will extend the term of your loan, or increase the amount of your final payment. Normal payment schedule will resume on the month following the skip. Interest will continue to accrue on your unpaid principal balance during the skip pay period. Certain terms and conditions apply, and GNCU reserves the right to deny any Skip-A-Payment program participation request.

By submitting this form, you acknowledge and agree to participate in Greater Nevada Credit Union's (GNCU) Skip-A-Payment program.

The Skip-A-Payment program is offered to eligible members with no penalties or late fees, and with no adverse effect on your credit. Interest will continue to accrue on your loan in the month of the skipped payment, and when you make your next payment, more of the payment will be applied to your interest.

This program does not apply to loans during the first six (6) months of the loan agreement. You may only exercise one (1) Skip-A-Payment per calendar year/per loan with a maximum of three (3) skipped payments per loan term. For example, if you skipped a car payment in January 2022, you will not be able to skip another payment until January 2023.

There is a $39.00 processing fee for each approved skipped loan payment.

The following loan types are eligible for our Skip-A-Payment program: Certain New and Used Auto, New and Used Recreational Vehicles, and Personal Loans. Loan origination must be at least six (6) months prior to the Skip-A-Pay request.

If you are requesting a Skip-A-Payment on a loan that has GAP coverage, you understand you may jeopardize any future GAP claim in the event of a total loss on the covered vehicle. Please refer to your GAP contract for further details or speak with a loan representative for further information.

Payments must be current and other conditions apply. GNCU reserves the right to deny any Skip-A-Payment program participation request.
