Make the most of your finances

We all want to know that our futures are secure and that we have enough money to be comfortable in later life. Although it may seem a long way off now, planning ahead could make all the difference to your future happiness. Everyone’s needs are different and, with such a wide range of financial products and services available, it is difficult to know which products are right for you.

We want to re-unite our members with their lost or forgotten savings accounts.  Lost accounts are also sometimes known as 'dormant' accounts or 'unclaimed assets'.

Before opening an account with us you should read our general terms and conditions which sets out how we manage your account and everything else you need to know.

On 6 April 2016, HMRC introduced the Personal Savings Allowance (PSA). This means you could earn up to £1,000 of interest per tax year on your non-ISA savings accounts before having to pay tax on your interest. 

We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a building society is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors – including most individuals and small businesses – are covered by the scheme.

If you have seen a savings account product on our website and want to apply, or you simply want to know more, we will help you every step of the way. This is what you need to do next.
