Bank Accounts & Credit Unions

Here is some basic information about bank accounts and credit unions.

Bank Accounts

If you’re earning a wage or claiming benefits, you’ll need a bank account. For more information about opening or switching an account, please visit the Money Advice Service website.

Credit unions

Credit unions are financial co-operatives owned and controlled by their members. They offer savings and good value loans. The Credit Union is fully insured, so all savings are protected. They also offer simple bank accounts supported by pre paid VISA Debit Cards. No credit check is required to hold a bank account.
