A Guide to Our Saving Accounts

Savings, and encouraging our members to save on a regular basis, is at the very heart of what Walsave stands for as your local credit union.

Without savings Walsave cannot function. Saving money is not easy but Walsave helps by encouraging the habit of saving amongst its members. Many members have experienced the satisfaction of accumulating sufficient savings when an unexpected need arises. Even small amounts of regular savings can build into large amounts in a surprisingly short space of time.

Saving with Walsave

With our straightforward, easy access accounts, you have a convenient way to save as much or as little as you can afford.  £1 is the equivalent of one share in the credit union, and regardless of the number of shares a member has (or amount of savings) every member is equal. We encourage members to make regular savings, as this promotes good money management for individuals, continually adds to the central pool of money and ensures that as a member, you are eligible to access our low cost loans and other services.
The interest earned on your savings comes in the form of a dividend that is payable each year and the amount of dividend will depend on the surplus made during the year.

There are many advantages to saving at Walsave. See our key features listed below.
