You have easy access to your savings. You can withdraw some or all of your money whenever you want (provided they’re not pledged as security for a loan).
Your savings are fully secure and are protected by the Irish Deposit Guarantee Scheme. Existing members can save up to a maximum of €50,000 and new members (effective from 1st June 2021) can save up to a maximum of €15,000.
Each year, any surplus income generated is returned to you as a dividend and/or reinvested to improve our services. Every share you hold for is eligible to receive a dividend. This means, the more shares you hold, the greater your dividend.
There are no transaction fees or hidden charges on savings (or loan) accounts.
Free Life Savings Insurance
Savings are insured at no direct cost to each eligible member. The insurance is paid in addition to the savings you hold at the time of your death.

Pay It Forward
Finally, you have the added bonus of knowing that your savings are put to good use and made available to fellow members in the form of loans.
