Skip-A-Pay Frequently Asked Questions

Q:

Can I add the $25 Skip-a-Payment fee to the balance of my loan?

A:

No, the $25 must be collected at the time you apply to Skip-a-Payment. If the funds are not available in your MOVFCU member account, please be sure to complete the payment details in the Skip-A-Payment request below or contact a team member by phone or email: [email protected]

Please note: Skip-A-Pay requests will not be processed until the service charge has been received.

Alternative options:

  • Payment by phone: Simply call us during business hours to schedule the payment using your card with another Financial Institution.
  • Bill Pay: Using Bill Pay with another Financial Institution? Set MOVFCU up as a payee. They may also offer P2P, if so you may be able to add the funds to your MOVFCU Savings.

Q:

When must I apply to skip next month’s payment?

A:

The loan payment should be current. We recommend applying at least 10 days before the scheduled payment due date. 

Q:

Can I skip two months in a row?

A:

Though you can skip two months per rolling 12-month period, you cannot skip two consecutive months.

Q:

When can I skip my first payment?

A:

You must have had the loan open and made at least one (1) loan payment. Additionally, the loan must be in a "current" status, not more than fifteen (15) days past your payment due date.* 

Q:

What if I have set up an automatic payment?

A:

Automatic payment is a great way to pay! However, when taking advantage of our Loan Skip-a-Pay, it’s important to make preparations if you have an automatic payment set up:

  • If the transfer is an internal transfer from a MOVFCU account, your loan payment due date will be advanced automatically by our processor. 
  • If you make your loan payment automatically from another institution, thru recurring payments or Bill Pay, you will need to update your payments details once you have received confirmation that your MOVFCU Skip-A-Pay request has been approved and processed.
  • If you have authorized MOVFCU to initiate withdrawals from another financial institution, you then automatically authorize MOVFCU to suspend the transfer for one month when applying for Skip-a-Payment.
Q:

Will my loan still accrue interest when I skip a payment?

A:

Yes, interest will continue to accrue regardless of the skipped payment.
