Skip A Pay
You may be able to skip a loan payment! Sometimes you need a little payment relief – possibly at Christmas or tax time. Every twelve months members in good standing qualify for the option to skip a payment for one month on most personal loans (no real estate or credit card loans).
Contact our loan department for details at 907-228-6759. Need a little extra money in your pocket? Skip a Payment can help.

Automatic Payments for your Loan
Life is busy! Set up your loan with an automatic payment and lose the worry of a missed payment and a hit on your credit report. There are three options:
- Automatic payment from your Tongass Federal Credit Union account
- Print the automatic payment form
- Automatic ACH payment from your account at another financial institution
- Print the ACH payment form
- Payroll deduction (check with your employer to set up).
Payment Protection with Life and Disability Insurance
It is widely known that the majority of adults are underinsured. When disaster strikes your family it is a big relief to your loved ones when you are prepared. Credit life insurance and disability insurance may be purchased when you get your loan or you may add it during the life of your loan. You pay the premium on a monthly basis and it is included in your loan payment. Contact our loan department for more information.
