Deferrals are subject to review and approval. You understand that finance charges continue to accrue on a daily basis and this authorization amends the original loan agreement, which may change the total amount and the schedule of your repayment. If you request a Skip‐A‐Payment on a Visa Credit Card, 1) FINANCE CHARGES will continue to accrue at the rate provided in your original credit card agreement, during and after that time; 2) deferring your next payment will result in your having to pay higher total FINANCE CHARGES than if you made your payments as originally scheduled; 4) we need your request 72 hours prior to the due date if your payment is made automatically or electronically; 5) you will be required to resume your monthly payments within the next 30‐60 days; and 6) fee to skip $30.00. All deferrals subject to Department of Commerce Federal Credit Union approval. Your Department of Commerce Federal Credit Union accounts, including loans and credit cards must be current (have no amounts past due or negative balances) at the time you submit your Skip‐A‐Payment request. Certain restrictions may apply.
