*Certain restrictions apply. Please note that you cannot skip your first three loan payments. This offer is only open to loans that have a minimum of three months of payment history established. Skipping payments will extend the maturity date of the loan one month for every Skip-A-Payment processed. Debt protection or GAP purchased to cover your Democracy Federal Credit Union loan(s) excludes deferred payments; therefore, in the event of a claim, you may have a residual balance as a result of Skip-A-Payment authorization. Interest will continue to accrue on any unpaid principal balance(s) and may impact your final payment amount. Your scheduled monthly payment amount will not change; however the amounts applied to principal and interest may vary as a result of Skip-A-Payment authorizations. If any accounts, active or closed, held by the Borrower and/or
Co-Borrower with Democracy Federal Credit Union are not in good standing, a Skip-A-Payment may be denied until the account is brought into a positive status. Automatic payments to the loan under this program are for monthly payments only on the due date of the loan.
