Savings—so you’re ready for anything.
Putting something aside regularly for a rainy day isn’t just a good habit. It’s also about building financial independence, so that when opportunity knocks, or the worst happens, you know you’ll be ready.
As a credit union, we’re all about helping you get into financial shape. That’s why, whatever your situation, we make it easy for you to save, so you can enjoy more good times and fewer sleepless nights.
Safe and secure
How it works
Your membership account
When you become a member, you automatically receive a membership account, which you can use to save and to secure any loans you have with us. If we make a surplus (a profit), any dividend will be paid into this account, based on how much is saved in it.
You need to keep at least £5 in your membership account at all times to maintain your membership of the credit union.
Types of account
You’re never too young to start saving. Our under 18s account is designed to enable our younger members to learn all about managing their money and developing good financial habits.
Anyone under 18 who lives or study in the London Boroughs of Southwark, Lambeth, Westminster or Camden is eligible for a Young Saver’s account, or, an adult can open one on their behalf.
Christmas can be a special time, but we know it can be a stressful one too—especially if money is tight. Our Christmas account enables you to start saving regularly from January, and we’ll encourage you to keep up the habit through to December.
For that dream holiday, a summer break or for family memories that will last a lifetime, make it happen with our Holiday Savings Account. We give you the flexibility to save as much as you want, as and when you want. Your savings are ready to withdraw when you are — just don’t forget the suntan lotion!

Are my savings secure?
London Mutual Credit Union is a fully licensed financial institution, regulated by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), just like any bank.
In addition, every account is backed by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, which guarantees that in the unlikely event anything went wrong, your account balance up to £80,000 is fully protected.
