Things you should know
  • Members must keep 20% of the outstanding loan value in their Membership Account as security. This amount cannot be withdrawn until the outstanding loan balance is less than the amount held in the Membership Account account.
  • After repaying 25% of the original loan value for loans above £10,000 or 10% of the original loan value for loans under £10,000, members can apply to top up the loan. Lump sum repayments do not count towards the 10% or 25%.
  • Paying ‘lump sums’ into a savings account to qualify for a Platinum Loan is not permitted. Instead regular weekly or monthly savings are required. However, transferring regular savings from another savings account may be considered, on an individual basis.
  • The Platinum Loan is not available to members who are bankrupt or have an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) that shows on their credit report.
  • Other terms and conditions may apply.
