Electronic Payments to your CU current account

Every member can have a current account with their own unique BIC & IBAN number. You can then set up payment into your current account, most popular types of payments are wages & salaries, pension payments, social welfare payments especially children’s allowance, once off payments from friends and family such as birthday or wedding gifts.

It is advisable not to let balances build up too high on your current account, as you will not earn dividend on balances, if a dividend was to be paid at the end of the year. You can move your current account money yourself on your on-line CU account or come in and we will do it with you at the counter. Just let us know where you want the funds to go from your current account: perhaps to a loan for repayment or into your savings.

You can set this up on-line yourself from your CU on-line account or come in and we can process these at the counter for you. Most popular outgoing payments are to pay utility bills, credit cards, store cards, for gifts or holiday payments.
