Helping Hand Loans
Helping Hand Loans are an alternative to people who do not have a save to borrow account. This loan service provides people with an alternative to having to borrow from high interest lenders.
To qualify for a Helping Hand loans there is a criteria that needs to be met. If you would like to apply for a Helping Hand Loan, contact us to arrange an interview or to top up an existing loan call into the office, ring or email us.
To apply for a standard loan you need to be saving regularly for at least 13 weeks, you can apply to borrow up to double your savings. Your first loan can be up to a maximum of £500, your second loan up to a maximum of £750.00 and your third loan up to a maximum of £1000. Any subsequent loans are double your savings up to a maximum of £10,000.
When applying for a loan you must have at least half of the amount you wish to borrow in your savings and your savings must stay in the account until the loan is cleared and be added to by a minimum of £1 a week. These loans are offered at 1% per month on the decreasing balance.
How do I get my money?
On your application you will be asked to specify how you would like your money paid. There are a number of options available that include paying money directly into your bank account, uploading your money onto your credit union visa card or a cashable cheque for either the cooperative bank or the local post office.
Life Insurance on Loans and Savings
At Norris Green Credit Union we have taken out an insurance policy which is implemented at £3.00 administration charge per member on an annual basis. This policy is aimed at making the lives of families and next-of-kin easier in the event of the death of the Credit Union member.
What does this mean?
As a result of this policy if the member has a loan with the Credit Union this would be settled, so the next of kin would not be pursued for any outstanding balance.
