Please note that loan applications will need to be returned to the office on the Friday before the loan sitting by 4pm, at the latest. We are unable to process applications received on the day of the loan sitting.

Members will be contacted by the Credit Committee if there are any queries with your loan application.

If the loan is approved, cheques will be available for collection on the Friday of the loan sitting week. If it’s a direct payment into your account, funds will be cleared into your bank account on the Thursday / Friday of the loan sitting week (We are aware of banks immediate payments facilities, however, the credit union still needs two authorisation signatures on bank transfers)

Subject to the policy of the Credit Union and Government money laundering regulations, lump sums deposited into Share Accounts, will not be calculated in loan availability if a loan is requested within 6 months of that deposit.

Share Withdrawals

Share Withdrawals are done twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This means that if you present a share withdrawal before 2:30 pm on Tuesday, you'll have the money in your account on Wednesday morning. If you present it between 2:30 pm on Tuesday and 2:30 pm on Thursday, the money will be in your account Friday morning.

Dear Members,

As I'm sure you are aware we have been experiencing down-time on our servers over the past couple of weeks.

We do apologize for the disruption you have experienced and are doing our utmost to ensure we get this rectified for you as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience whilst we get this resolved. Read more
