Work Not Worry - Help Your Employees Save With Your Credit Union

11th October 2019

Employers can help their staff to save very easily by offering payroll deductions each month with a credit union.

Credit unions are financial co-operatives owned and controlled by their members. They are authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority. They are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, so the first £85,000 of a member's savings is completely safe.
