A minimum of six (6) consecutive, timely loan payments must be made prior to the first allowable Skip-A-Pay. If approved, and once the fee is collected, the payment due date is advanced one month. The regular monthly payment amount remains the same. The next scheduled payment will include interest for two (2) months, the interest due for the month skipped, and the currently accrued interest.
