Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

If you collect a loan or withdraw money from your savings, we can issue either cash or a cheque and are now able to offer you a third option – Electronic Funds Transfer!

We can transfer funds directly to, either your bank account, or another account of your choice, e.g. to pay a bill. The funds will be in your account, and available to you, within 2 working days* of the transaction so, if, for example, you request a savings withdrawal on a Monday, you can draw this money from your bank on Wednesday.


Safer – No need to handle cash which can be lost or stolen.

Quicker – Your money will be available to you within 2 working days*.

*Credit transfers to SEPA countries that do not use euro can take longer to process. This is out of our control and is up to the recipient bank. We cannot do transfers to non SEPA countries.
