Your Money Is Safe With Us
When it comes to saving, Credit Unions are different. You’re not just saving for yourself, but also helping your fellow members borrow for their dreams too! We really are about people helping people.
When you open a Regular Share Account with us you are a member, not a customer. This means that you are a part-owner of the Credit Union with equal rights to vote and participate in decisions affecting our Credit Union. As a member with a Share Account you will receive a dividend, if declared, on your savings, and be able to borrow at great rates for whatever your dreams in life.
Start a regular saving pattern
It can be a challenge to start a regular saving pattern and that is why we have made it as easy as possible. We have a number of ways which you can lodge savings to your account including:
- By lodgement directly in any of our branches
- By setting up a Direct Debit from your bank account
- By Payroll deduction
- By phone or in-branch using your debit card
How to set up a direct debit
You can set up a direct debit through our online or mobile banking facilities, click here to learn more about our online facilities.
We can work with your employer to set up easy payroll deduction. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like further information about payroll deduction. N.B. The credit union now has a saving restriction of €20,000 per member account. This means that each member can only have €20,000 on deposit with the credit union.
Visual Savings Card
The Visual Savings Card is a reusable card that displays and updates the balance with each transaction, allowing members to save and budget for bills and special occasions, in a safe and secure manner.

School Savings Scheme
Kilmallock Credit Union operates a school savings scheme in several schools in the common bond. The objective of the scheme is to encourage children to develop a savings habit. Credit union staff and volunteers collect the money at the designated schools every week during the school term.
Life Savings Insurance
This is the life insurance cover that we take out for all eligible members as an additional incentive to save regularly and maintain your savings. There is no direct cost to members. The insurance is paid in addition to the savings you hold at the time of your death. The amount depends on the member’s age, how much you have saved over the years, and other terms and conditions.
A Nomination is a legally binding, written instruction that tells us what to do with your money after your death. It allows access to funds (max €23k) by the nominee within a very short period of the death of the member.
This service is free to our members and one of the great attractions of credit union membership.
Deposit Guarantee Scheme
The Central Bank of Ireland is responsible for administering the Irish Deposit Guarantee Scheme which provides protection to depositors in the event of a credit institution failing. Deposits up to €100,000 per person per institution are protected and compensation is payable to eligible depositors within 15 working days. Eligible deposits in banks, building societies and credit unions authorised in Ireland are covered by the scheme.
