How do I join a credit union?
Most local areas have a credit union, but before you can open an account with them you’ll have to have a ‘common bond’ with that credit union. Every member of the credit union will be linked in some way, for example:
- Living or working in the same area
- Working for the same employer
- Belonging to the same trade union
- Belonging to the same church or other association
As long as one person in your household shares a ‘common bond’ with a credit union then anyone in your house can normally join.
