Our Credit Union is for People, Not for Profit!

Owned by its Members

A credit union is a group of people who save together and lend to each other at a fair and reasonable rate of interest.

Serving its Members

The Credit Union exists only to serve its members. When you save with the credit union you contribute to your credit unions loan fund – in effect by saving you are helping other members – members like you.

Run for People not Profit

The Credit Union is an organisation run for people, not for profit.

No Fees

There are no account fees, maintenance costs or charges on personal credit union accounts. There are fees on the MYCU current account, but some members have fee concessions.

Free Services

We have a wide range of financial services available with a variety of discounts and free services for members. These include house insurance, car insurance and travel insurance.


Online access to your accounts including the ability to transfer funds from your credit union account to other financial institutions or to pay bills and the ability to pay into your credit union account online using your debit card.

High Quality Service

Our mission is to meet members’ financial needs through quality service at the best value while maintaining financial stability. In doing so, we aim to provide the highest level of personal financial services in a friendly and professional manner.

Helping the Community

Many credit unions help to further community development and we are no exception, developing strong links with the local community and participating in a number of local initiatives as well as making a wide range of donations annually.

How we Differ from Banks

A credit union is a group of people who save together and lend to each other at a fair and reasonable rate of interest. Credit unions offer members the chance to take control over their own finances by making their own savings work for them. Every Credit Union is owned by the members – the people who save & borrow with it.
