Banking is what you do,
not where you do it
Fall 2014
Banking The Credit Union Way
If you usually get too carried away with the giving spirit
or have big plans for 2015, let United Consumers Credit
Union provide the extra cash – whatever the reason!
With United Consumers Credit Union’s Skip-A-Payment
program, you pay a processing fee of 10% of your payment
or $50 (whichever is less), and put off your December or
January payment without penalty!* Don’t delay – the
deadline for our December Skip-A-Payment is November
21, and the deadline for the January Skip-A-Payment is
December 19. Just fill out the convenient form, and turn it
in before the request deadline to see if you qualify.
Keep the money you would have spent on your payment(s) and ring in the new
year with extra cash! Just think of all the things you could do; the possibilities are
endless with our Skip-A-Payment program!

straight months of on-time payments to qualify. Eligibility based on member credit and other factors. Skip-A-Payment fee must be paid 10 days prior to loan due date to allow
time for processing. Regular payments will resume with your January or February 2015 payment. Interest will continue to accrue during the payment deferment period. Loan
extensions such as Skip-A-Payment may affect the GAP insurance coverage on your vehicle. Contact the credit union for complete details.
