Important Details

Lanco FCU has the right to accept or deny Skip-a-Payment requests at its discretion.

Skip-a-Payment Fee

There is a $35.00 fee for each approved Skip-A-Payment request.* The fee may be withdrawn from your Lanco FCU account, paid by cash, or by check made payable to Lanco Federal Credit Union.

Final Payment Date

Your final payment date will be extended to allow you to pay your skipped payment at the end of your loan. Please note that interest will continue to accrue at your normal contract rate on your unpaid loan balance during the skipped period but you will not owe a late charge for skipping your payment. In addition, all other terms and provisions of your loan will remain the same.

*Eligibility during COVID-19 Pandemic:  Lanco FCU is waiving the Skip-a-Payment fee and lifting some of the eligibility requirements. If your loan does not meet the standard Skip-a-Payment criteria described, please contact us at (717) 569-7180 or (888) 318-4222 to discuss your options.
