At Alternatives Federal Credit Union, we want to help you stay on top of your payments. That's why we offer SkipPayment on eligible credit union loans. For a processing fee, you can choose to skip your monthly loan payment and extend your loan period by one payment. Have more than one eligible loan? Skip a payment on each.

Use the cash to take charge of your budget, to complete a project, to cover unexpected expenses, or wherever you need to. It's our way of showing our members that we appreciate your membership and loyalty—and understand that sometimes we all need breathing room.
