Summertime is so much sweeter when you’re not sweating about your bills!
Many people wonder how they’ll get through these next few months. Fortunately, Complex offers an exclusive break from your loan payments during this time of year. Now that sounds like a dream vacation!
Skip-a-Pay is a program that allows members to skip a monthly loan payment during an especially tight financial season. Once a year, members can request Skip-A-Pay, submit a $15 fee, and skip paying on an eligible loan.
Specific criteria must be met to qualify for Skip-a-Pay. The program is only allowed for certain loans such as auto loans, recreation loans, and personal loans and must also have a good payment history of 6 or more months. Mortgages, business loans, Christmas loans, credit cards and other lines of credit are not eligible for Skip-a-Pay.
Skipping a loan payment has many benefits, but an informed decision is the best decision. Here are a few more points to consider before you decide to skip a payment:
- Breathing room
The primary benefit of choosing to skip a payment is quite obviously, the extra cash flow. During an expensive time of year, you might not make it through the month without resorting to swiping your credit card. By opting to skip a large payment on a loan, you’ll free up cash for your daily expenses so you don’t finish the month in the red. Summertime is so much sweeter when you’re not sweating about your bills!
- Longer loan term
It’s important to remember by skipping a payment, you’re lengthening the life of your loan. True, you’re skipping a payment now, but you’ll need to make that up one day. You’re essentially moving this month’s payment to the end of the loan.
- Accrued interest
Although Skip-a-Pay may prevent you from having to dip into your credit card — thanks to the extra cash you’ll have. You will eventually be billed for interest on that month’s skipped loan payment. You’ll pay that interest at the end of the loan term.
