Take a Break from your Payment

Take a break from the payment on your qualified nw+ loan. Members in good standing who have completed at least 6 payments can apply to advance their loan payment date by one month, with the NW Plus CU Skip-A-Pay program. Handy for holidays, vacations, and any 'life happens' moments- nw+ wants to give you the flexibility you need from our lending products. 


How it works

Apply to skip a payment with this form. When you skip a payment on your qualified loan, your current due date will be advanced one month forward, just as if you had paid your monthly payment. Interest will continue to accrue on your loan during the skipped payment period and your loan maturity date will extend an additional month to account for the skipped payment month. All terms and conditions will remain the same and you'll resume your next regular payment on its regularly scheduled date!

Is there a Fee?

Once approved and processed, a $40 processing fee will be deducted from your primary nw+|cu savings account. It is up to you to ensure the fee is available at the time of processing or the Skip-A-Pay will be rejected and it will be up to you to contact the CU for any follow up.

How will I know my application has been approved?

You'll receive confirmation via email, which will include your next payment due date. We also recommend that you check your loan account online or via your monthly statement to ensure your new Skip-A-Pay due date is correct.

Important notes

  • If your loan payment is set up via transfer within your NW Plus Online Banking or by you from another financial institution (ex: re-occurring bill pay), it is your responsibility to pause or reschedule payments. We are unable to reverse any payment you have set up that was not stopped for the chosen month. If you're unsure of how your payment is set up, contact us at: 425.297.1000.
  • If your loan payment is made via Direct Deposit or Payroll Deduction, the payment will be credited to your savings account as it is received.
  • Each member is allowed to skip a monthly payment one time per year per eligible loan; maximum 7 times during the life of a loan.
  • Please allow a minimum of one week for us to process your request.
  • If you have GAP on your loan, participating in Skip-A-Pay could have an adverse effect on your benefits if a claim is filed.
