Each £1 of savings in the Credit Union equals a share in the Credit Union. The more shares you hold, the greater the return you receive when the annual dividend is being paid.
A credit union is a great way to save as you are not just another customer like you are in a Bank. You will have a share in the ownership of the credit union, have a say in its operations and earn an annual dividend.
A Dividend is the same as interest on your savings, but because you are a shareholder in the Credit Union. We normally pay an annual Rebate on Loan Interest.*
*The rate varies from year to year and is dependent on the performance of the Credit Union. Our Members vote at the AGM as to whether they wish to accept the Board of Directors recommended dividend figure.
