By signing above you authorize ABCO Federal Credit Union to advance your next loan payment date to the month following the one selected. There is a $25 processing fee for each
loan that you elect to skip a payment. You authorize the credit union to deduct the fee(s) from any account that you have with the credit union that has funds available. Interest will continue
to accrue on your loan during the month you skip your payment. Payments made through payroll deduction or direct deposit will be put into your savings account on the due date of the
month you are skipping. If you have multiple loans, we will select the loan with the highest payment to skip unless otherwise directed.

ONLINE BILL PAYER


                Automate bill payments with our Free Online Banking
                Bill Payer and you’ll have it easy – a piece of cake.

                Simply set up your recurring bills such as mortgage payments, utility
                company, and insurance payments. Each month, Bill Payer
                automatically deducts the amount of the bill from your ABCO Share
                Draft Checking Account (up to your limits, of course) and sends the
                payments in time to meet each due date.

                You can add other bills that are not the same amount each month.
                When they arrive, go online and set the due date. Bill Payer then
                deducts the money and sends the payment only when it is needed
                - in time to pay the bill.

                Forget about mailing checks, buying stamps, or running out to pay in
                person. The best part – no worries about missed payments or late
                fees. You set it and forget it.

                It’s a piece of cake to set up and use Bill Payer. There’s even a video
                you can watch online to help you get started. Get started now to
                have your cake and get more time, too.
