In addition to your share account you can also open a separate savings account known as a deposit account
Lodgements and withdrawals can be made from this account at any time, as they are not held against a loan. There are:
- No Penalties
- No Charges
How to open a Deposit Account
To open a deposit account you must already have an account with us and proof of your PPS number will be required at time of opening.
Interest is applied monthly to your deposit account. DIRT is automatically deducted before interest is applied to the account.
Current deposit account interest rate 2021: 0%
Please note: the interest rate on deposit accounts can be changed by the Board of Directors at any time.
Limit on Savings per Credit Union Account
Due to the capital levels required by the Central Bank, we can no longer accept savings greater than €20,000.
If you are affected by this, please speak to a member of staff.
