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.

Advantages:

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.

 

Payment Methods

Community Credit Union offers a number of payment options to enable you to make lodgments into your account (whether to save or make payment off a loan).

Cash – Value for the cash is given and available to you immediately.

Cheque – All cheques must be processed through the bank clearing system before the funds are available. It takes 10 working days for any cheque lodged to complete the clearing system.

Standing Order – Value for the Standing Order is given on the same day that the full details of the payment hit the Credit Union’s bank account and is available to you immediately. Please note that your Standing Order payent takes approximately 2-3 working days before your payment reaches the credit union’s bank account.

The benefit is paid on the EXTRA amount saved between each birthday and the maximum benefit is paid on savings made before the age of 55.

 

Loan Protection

Where members are borrowing from the Credit Union, there is obviously the possibility that they may not completely repay the loan due to death.

We prefer that they do not have the worry that they may leave a debt for their next of kin so we insure the loan against these risks.

There are some restrictions relating to the age of the member and the size of the loan, but in the main we succeed in covering almost every loan under this scheme.

One important condition is that the member must be in good health when taking out the loan, but even where they may have a pre-existing medical condition, we can usually either partially, if not fully, insure them.
