Savings Membership

Savings in a Credit Union are known as “shares”. Each share represents £1.00 in savings and is used as security against a loan. Regular savings will build up a substantial share capital for you and security for the future.

Your savings earn dividends which are paid annually. The amount of your dividend will depend on.

The amount of shares you have saved (one share is equal to £1.00).

The surplus income available for distribution by your credit union to members.

Free life savings insurance is provided for all members who join before their 70th birthday. It currently pays £2000. Maximum number of shares that can be held is £20000.

Your savings are guaranteed under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS protect and guarantee your savings up to a maximum value of £75,000. Further information can be obtained from the credit union or visit

At the age of 16 the minor account will be re-classified and will transfer to a “full” adult account, however the minor is required to attend a membership meeting before the adult account can be activated.
