Savings

How do I pay into my account?

You can make deposits into your savings account with us either by cheque, by bank transfer or by payroll deduction. If you have lost your NLCU bank account details then just get in touch and we’ll confirm them for you.

The amount you save we leave up to you! There are no transactional fees with saving. We have a range of savings accounts and you can request your deposits be split for different purposes like Christmas or Holidays. The maximum balance we can hold in our accounts for a single person is £10000.

Do I get a return on my savings?

Usually yes! As a financial cooperative we share our profits with our shareholders – and all our customers are our shareholders.

Once we have paid for running costs and paid into our legally required reserves we share the rest amongst members based on the amount in their savings.  The dividend that we pay to our members is voted on at our yearly AGM – see our downloads page for more info from our last AGM.

You can withdraw funds:

  1. Online using our online banking service or our mobile app
  2. Over the phone on 0330 004 0842 – lines open Monday to Friday 10am-3pm
