Regular Saving

Here is how a regular Credit Union savings plan can help you to build up a substantial savings account:

Years £1 per week £5 per week
1 £52 £260
2 £104 £520
3 £156 £780
4 £208 £1,040
5 £260 £1,300

This table does not include dividends. Dividends earned on your savings increase the above totals.

Withdrawal of Savings

You may withdraw your credit union savings upon request.  However, the withdrawal of savings that are pledged as security against a loan must be referred to Credit Committee for approval. Ordinarily, pledged savings may not be withdrawn. Members are encouraged to consider taking a loan to meet their needs, thereby keeping their savings (and the insurance they earn) intact.
