Save with your Credit Union

We all know the merits of saving money, either for something specific or for that "rainy day". The big difference between your credit union and any other savings account is that members own the credit union.

The maximum amount of savings for each account is €100,000. This amount is inclusive of all balances in all accounts. Juvenile accounts are available for members under 16 years of age.

Types of PCU Accounts

Share Accounts

When you open a Share Account to save with the Credit Union, you become a part owner of our successful financial co-operative. A minimum of €10 shares is required at all times to retain membership.

As a member you have a say in the operation of the credit union and you may earn dividends on your shares. Please note that dividends paid to members need to be approved at our Annual General Meeting and are subject to DIRT.

What is a nomination?

A nomination is a legally binding, written instruction that tells the Credit Union what to do with your property after your death. Property includes shares, deposits, loans and insurance proceeds.

Who can I nominate?

A Member, who must be over 16 years of age, can nominate anyone, family, friend or a group of people. Where one person is nominated, that person will be the sole beneficiary of your Credit Union property subject to the maximum permitted by law (currently €23,000). Anything in excess will not be released until we have been furnished with a Grant of Probate.

Can I change my nomination?

Yes, by filling in a new nomination form. A nomination becomes invalid if the member gets married or the person that has been nominated dies. It is a good idea therefore to review the nomination from time to time, in order to ensure that the person/s nominated is/are the most appropriate.

Factors that effect a nomination

Death of the nominee (prior to that of the nominator) automatically revokes that nomination, so a new nomination should be completed at that time. The marriage of a member after completing a nomination automatically revokes that nomination, so a new nomination will be required at that time also. Divorce or legal separation will not revoke a nomination.

Please note that a nomination will supersede a member's will and is not revocable or variable by it or any codicil to it.

Where do I get a nomination form?

You can obtain a nomination form in any of our offices.
