Skip-a-Payment Program Details:

*By participating in USSFCU’s Skip-A-Pay program, you request that USSFCU defer your loan payment. You will be required to resume your payments the following month. The skipped payment amount will extend the maturity date of the loan. Interest will continue to accrue during the skipped period.

All Skip-A-Pays are subject to USSFCU’s approval. Payment extensions through our Skip-a-Pay program are not available on Holiday Loans, Homeowner Loans, Home Equity Loans, Home Equity Lines of Credit, Home Improvement Plus, Home Improvement Unsecured, Personal Lines of Credit or VISA® Credit Cards. Extending the term of the loan may negatively affect any GAP coverage.

Only one skipped payment is allowed every 90 days. Only two skipped payments are allowed within the last 365 days. Skip-a-pay is only allowed on loans that are at least six months old with a payment amount greater than $35. Skip-A-Pay may be requested up to the loan maturity date. Skip-A-Pay is allowed up to 30 days before the loan due date and up to 5 days after the loan due date. Skip-A-Pay is only permitted if the current loan payment method is cash, coupon, or auto-transfer. It is not permitted if the loan payment method is by payroll distribution or a scheduled auto-transfer.

Skip-A-Pay is available only to USSFCU accountholders in good standing. Skip-A-Pay is not available on accounts with more than three payments over 30 days late on any loan or with any loan that is more than 60 days late in the last 365 days. Dormant, bankrupt, charge-off, delinquent, over-limit, or accounts with an out-of-date address are ineligible. Members must have $40 available in savings or $35 available in checking accounts in order to use the Skip-A-Pay service.

Fees Do Apply.

  • If requesting the Skip-a-Pay service through online banking, a $25 fee is charged.
  • If requested through Member Services or at a USSFCU branch, a $35 fee is charged.

I have been a member for over 50 years, and I have always gotten good service with loans, when I had to have service at a branch, and when I needed to have money sent to me from my savings account. The personnel have always been friendly and treated me with respect.

I especially appreciate being able to quickly speak with someone (not a robot) and that person has always been knowledgeable and helpful.

Excellent customer service streamlined and transparent process. The representatives are efficient, knowledgeable, and understanding of the type of loans offered by Credit Union.

The USSFCU behaves as a credit union ought to behave. The staff works with and for the members, not for a corporate board. Interest rates for a car loan, a home improvement loan, and a mortgage are low and terms are transparent.

Staff are courteous and friendly to work with. Very knowledgeable about services and products offered or available. Excellent follow-up with customers.

I have appreciated USSFCU services for many years since I left my work on Capitol Hill. I have appreciated the occasional webinars on purchasing a home or retirement planning.

I have been a member since 2006, and have always appreciated the customer service response to any concern or query. In addition, as I have traveled extensively, USSFCU has provided support and access.

I've had a credit union account for decades, even though I no longer work on Capitol Hill. I now have two accounts. I've been able to do all of our banking remotely, by app or by phone.

I have been a USSFCU member for almost 20 years. There is nowhere else I want my money to be. I always receive excellent service.

I deeply appreciate the stellar service, the proficiency, the professionalism, and the kindness. I am truly honored and grateful to bank with a financial institution that treats customers like family.
