Why use a credit union?

There are many great reasons to join a credit union
  • Credit unions help you save regularly, borrow responsibly and keep on top of your finances.
  • Credit unions make it easy to save – even a small amount saved each week will soon mount up.
  • Many employers have partnerships with credit unions which allow staff to save and repay loans direct from payroll.
  • As co-operatives, credit unions share their profits with their members. This often means savers will receive a dividend on their savings every year, which could be as much as 3%.
  • Credit unions offer affordable loans, which can range from shorter term loans of a few hundred pounds to much larger loans for holidays, buying a car, home improvements or even a mortgage.
  • Credit unions are often able to offer credit to people whose circumstances might mean they struggle to get a loan from other lenders.
  • Credit unions offer very competitive rates on loans of all sizes. For smaller sum loans, interest on credit union loans is always much lower than that charged by doorstep lenders and payday lenders.
  • All money saved in a credit union is protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme up to the value of £85,000 per person – exactly the same level of protection as savings in a bank or building society.
