Savings for a rainy day
Our Instant Access Savings Account is designed for our members to set money aside for a rainy day, with instant access to their savings
Members can transfer a lump sum of money from their Regular Savings Account or set up a regular payment by splitting their payroll deduction or direct debit between their Regular Savings Account and Instant Access Savings Account.
The Instant Access Savings Account offers members an easy access savings account. Funds in this account are available for withdrawal, regardless of any borrowings the member may have with the credit union.
There is no penalty for making withdrawals, and there is a potential dividend paid annually on savings.
All accounts benefit from our Free Life Savings and Loan Protection Scheme*
Life Savings Protection is designed to reward your family for your commitment to saving, and provide them with financial support when they most need it. Life Savings Protection is a free safeguard offered by the NHS Credit Union as a benefit to its members. The credit union owns this policy on behalf of members. In the event of your death, it may provide your family with a single lump sum payment which can help them to cover funeral and other expenses.
The scheme is directly linked to savings, and every £1 in savings can be matched by £1 of benefit – up to a maximum of £5,000.
Members aged 16-64 can qualify for 100% of savings to be repaid as a benefit (Maximum £5,000). Members aged 65-79 can qualify for 25% of savings to be repaid as a benefit (Maximum £5,000).
*Terms and conditions apply. These are subject to change, and are available on request.
Financial Services Compensation Scheme
All accounts benefit from our participation in the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a credit union is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors – including most individuals and small businesses – are covered by the scheme.
