Skip-a-Payment Fees Will Be Waived*

To help our members in this time of need, we have modified our normal Skip-a-Payment criteria and have temporarily waived the standard $25 fee per skip. At 1st Nor Cal, we appreciate the seriousness of the situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and we are anxious to do what we can to help. Members can skip three times a year (Jan-Dec) and six times over the lifetime of the loan. If skips for consecutive months are desired, each skip must be initiated individually. Effective 3-20-2020, we have waived the standard $25 fee per skip.

You can now process your own Skip-a-Payment (skip) for qualifying loans* within Home Banking! Simply click the gear icon next to your loan in Home Banking to see if your loan is eligible* and to start the request.

If you don’t have Home Banking and/or need assistance processing your Skip-a-Payment through Home Banking, please contact us at (888) 387-8632 or by calling (925) 293-1785 during business hours and we will be happy to help you.
