Better still, we’ll help to make your money go further: save at least £10 for 3 months and earn a £10 bonus, or save at least £25 for 3 months and earn a £25 bonus.

Financial services compensation scheme

 

Your savings in all your credit union accounts are protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS): so you’re covered for any money you have in your shares accounts (up to £85,000) if we can’t meet our financial commitments or we stop trading.

 

You can find out more about who and what’s covered by clicking on the link below. You’ll also find lots of helpful information (including the amounts covered and how you can claim) at fscs.org.uk
