You will receive a return on your savings in the form of an annual dividend. Our annual dividend is based on the surplus profits of the credit union, and is proposed by the Board to the membership at our Annual General Meeting each year.

An annual dividend is paid gross, directly into your account after the AGM. Since no tax is deducted, it is your responsibility to disclose the dividend to the HMRC.

Your savings with the credit union are not tax-free. If you are saving from your pay, salary deductions will be made from your net pay after taxes have been deducted.

To open a Junior Saver account, you must be a member of the credit union and save a minimum of £10 per month into our Regular Saver account.

Existing members can request a Junior Saver account by completing the form below.

At 18 years of age, the junior account will switch to a regular savings account (subject to ID requirements), with its own conditions, under the control of the new account holder.
