Eligible Savings are those that

  • are lodged before age 70 up to a maximum of £15,000,
  • remain intact in your account, and
  • are lodged whilst you were at work or, if not working, in good health.

Loan Protection Insurance

Loan Protection Insurance is provided to members at no direct cost to them.  This product clears your outstanding loan balance in the event of death subject to policy conditions.  In the event of your death, E.C.C.U. (the credit union insurance company) will clear your loan balance -- it will not have to be paid off from your savings or by your family!


Every borrowing member is eligible for Loan Protection Insurance if they are:

  • actively engaged in the usual duties of his/her livelihood on the date they receive the loan, or
  • if not working, that they are in good health and capable of performing the usual duties of their livelihood on that date.
Insurance cover on loans ceases at age 85 for Standard Credit Union loans and at age 80 for PLuSS Loans. Members pay no individual charge.

Death Benefit Insurance

The cover

Death Benefit Insurance (DBI) provides a one-off payment of £1,000 to the next of kin to help meet bereavement expenses on the death of a qualifying credit union member.  Insurance cover runs from 1st of January to 31st of December.  As from 10 November 2014 (the date of our 2014 AGM), it is no longer a member pay product.  Rather, eligible members will be covered by DBI at no direct cost to them.


To be eligible, a member is required to:

1.   Join the credit union before age 70.

     a.  There is no upper age limit

     b.  A member joining the credit union after age 70 years will not be eligible for cover.

2.   Be or have been eligible for cover under the Life Savings contract and have remained a member of the credit union.
