Save with your Credit Union

Get more from your money!

Whether you’re saving for something in the future or just for a ‘rainy day’, regular saving is a good idea.

Regular saving with Abbey Credit Union Ltd. is an even better idea. At Abbey Credit Union Ltd. you’re not just a customer, you’re a member of a successful financial co-operative.

Each share you hold in Abbey Credit Union Ltd. is equal to £1. There is a £2.50 pence entrance fee and you will need to hold a minimum savings of £25. Members enjoy equal rights to vote, (one member, one vote) and participate in decisions affecting the credit union. Depending on surplus income available Abbey credit Union may declare a dividend at the end of every financial year and each share you hold is eligible for a dividend. The more shares you have, the greater the dividend you will receive.

Can I have easy access to my savings?

You can withdraw your savings provided they are not pledged as security on a loan. However, you are encouraged to keep your savings intact, so that:

  • They continue to earn a dividend.
  • They continue to benefit from the Life Savings Insurance protection.

The staff at Abbey Credit Union Ltd. will be happy to talk to you about suitable alternatives to withdrawing your savings.

The current limit on savings is £15,000
