SAVINGS ACCOUNTS OVERVIEW
Regular Savings Account (Share Account)
Members can save as little as £2 a week (£10 a month salaries) in their Regular Savings Account. An Annual Dividend is paid on this account, dependent on surplus, regulations and agreement by members at the AGM. Please note the onus is on each member to declare this account to the Inland Revenue. Dividend rate is declared at the AGM and posted gross to members’ accounts.
Regular savings can be used to reduce the interest payable on a credit union loan. Please see Loans.
Jam Jar Account

Save up for Santa: this account runs throughout the year but withdrawals are only permitted in November and December, just in time for Christmas. It offers a 1% higher dividend than our Regular Savings Account.
