Covered Loan

Make your savings work for you.

There are a number of reasons why a Covered Loan makes sense;

  • Avail of our lowest interest rate for loans.
  • You continue to earn a dividend on your savings account.
  • Your savings remain intact.
  • Flexible Repayment Options.
  • Instant loan approval subject to Appointment
  • It’s easier to repay a loan than replace savings.
  • There are no restrictions on the purpose of the loan
  • Repayments are calculated on your reducing balance, so you pay less interest with each repayment.
  • Your credit union loan is insured - subject to terms and conditions - at no direct cost to you. Other lenders charge for this.
