Unlike high street banks, we are owned by our members and run solely for their benefit. Any employee of the NHS in Scotland or the north of England can join the NHS Credit Union – along with any member of family living in the same household. It’s easy to join.
If you are thinking of applying for a loan but not sure how much to borrow and for how long, our useful loan calculator can help you to see how much you may be able to borrow and what your repayments could be.
Even if you are working, you may be eligible for extra support? Depending on your circumstances, you may be missing out on extra money, which could help relieve pressure on your finances. We are delighted to announce that our NHS Credit Union Members have exclusive access to the UNISON Benefits Calculator. Please follow the link below and check if you are eligible and how to claim.
Just like your high street banks and building societies, the money you deposit into your credit union account, up to £85,000, is protected under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). If you have a joint account you will be protected for £85,000 each.
FSCS protection is free to customers, so if anything happens to your bank, building society or credit union, and you cannot access your money, the FSCS will refund you up to the amount of £85,000.
