Skip your December or January Loan Payment

Take a one month break from your vehicle, signature, share secured and other secured loan payment!

Please note there is a $35 processing fee per loan, and loans will continue to accrue interest during the month your payment is skipped.

For fastest service log into online banking and under 'all services' and select 'skip-a-pay'. If you do not access online banking, print and sign this form or stop into either branch.

Your loan account must be current, in good standing, and open at least 12 months. Offer valid on consumer installment loans only including auto, signature, share secured and other secured loans.  Excludes real estate loans/lines, billing loans, credit cards, lines of credit, workout loans and already posted payments. Qualified  loans are limited to two Skip-A-Pays per year and five per life of the loan.  We must receive your request no later than seven business days before the date of the requested skipped payment.  You understand that we will extend the due date of your regular payment by one month, for the month indicated above. Interest will continue to accrue on the entire loan balance, including the amount of the skipped payment and that skipping this payment means it will take longer to pay off the loan.  Payroll deduction will not be interrupted.  Any credit life and/or disability and GAP insurance on the loan will not extend beyond the original maturity date of the loan.  OUCU reserves the right to refuse to honor this request if all terms of the disclosure statement and agreement have not been met.

She also wanted to mention to us that she "has not had one problem here" and stated, "I have been very pleased with the service here." Thank you for being one of our great longtime members, Lucy, and congratulations!

Cell Phones for Soldiers Program

OUCU has partnered with GM and Invest in America to help collect old cell phones.

The donated phones are sent to ReCellular, which pays Cell Phones for Soldiers for each phone -- the money is used to purchase prepaid calling cards which are sent to troops.

Cell phone donations are accepted at both OUCU branches. You can even donate phones that are no longer in working condition -- they will be dismantled and recycled to reclaim some materials.
