School Savers (Treasure Chest)

The Credit Union’s School Savers’ Scheme has been awarded £1,000 from the St Albans City and District Council’s Community Grants Fund. We will use the money to pay for prizes for our school savers and to extend the School Savers’ Scheme to other schools in the community. .

Protection of savings

All Credit Union member's savings are currently protected under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) up to the existing limit of £85,000. However, from 1 January 2016, this limit will be amended to £75,000, due to the current value of the pound against the euro. Since the maximum amount that individual members can currently save with Credit Union is £15,000, all member's savings will continue to be protected under the FSCS.

Dividend for our savers  Year 2014/15

At the Credit Union AGM on 14 March 2016, a dividend of 0.6% for the 2014/15 year was approved unanimously by those members attending. This dividend will be added to member's share accounts during April 2016 (after 5 April). Due to the changes in the taxation rules around interest on savings announced by the Chancellor, only members who complete tax returns need to report credit union dividends. If tax returns are completed, the dividend should be reported as interest income.
