Enjoy the Freedom to Skip a Payment

We have all experienced the headache of an unexpected expense like an unforeseen car repair or a medical expense. Sometimes that means choosing between paying that expense or paying a car payment. Seattle Credit Union can help you avoid that choice.

Every Seattle Credit Union auto loan comes with Skip-A-Pay, which allows you to skip up to two payments every 12 months when you need to. For a small processing fee, you can request to skip a payment with no negative impact to your credit report.
