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.
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.
