Savings Secured Loan

Earn a dividend on your loan

You can now borrow a Savings Secured Loan at our best rate of 5% APR.

Available to all members with a membership account. You can protect your savings whilst still taking out money with our Savings Secured Loan. Simply choose an amount you wish to take out on loan from the available balance held in your Membership Account. Secure this amount in your Membership Savings until your loan is cleared. As you repay the loan you will also continue to build up your membership savings, meaning you will have a greater savings balance once the loan is cleared. This is very handy if you have no immediate plans to withdraw all of your savings.

  • Fantastic rate of 5% APR
  • Guaranteed loan that can be issued on the same day**
  • Free loan protection insurance (terms and conditions apply)
  • Interest is charged on your outstanding loan amount so will reduce with your decreasing balance
  • Continue to build your savings and earn a dividend whilst you repay your loan
  • No set up charges, early settlement charges or hidden fees

Your Credit Union loan is protected in the event of your death1 – helping protect your family from the financial burden of bereavement.

When you take out a loan with us you also get Loan Protection. If you were to die before your Credit Union loan is repaid, this protection can help towards settling the debt, so that it isn’t passed on to your loved ones.

Of course, it won’t take away the pain but it’ll certainly help with the financial strain of bereavement. This benefit is included at no extra cost to you as part of your Credit Union loan arrangement2 so just for once, peace of mind doesn’t cost the earth; it’s just another benefit of being a Credit Union member.

As a Credit Union member, you’re not only borrowing for the things you desire to make life more comfortable for you and your family; by choosing your Credit Union to borrow from, you’re helping your Credit Union provide better value loans for all Credit Union members. With the added peace of mind provided by Loan Protection, loans from your Credit Union can offer better financial security for you and your family.

* Member criteria: The Savings Secured Loan is only available to members with surplus savings in their Membership Account. Surplus savings refers to the amount of available savings held in your Membership Account and does not include any savings already tied in with other loan products, for standing order transfers or any other such regular payments.

Members must have made at least 1 regular payment through either payroll deduction or direct debit before any loan can be considered.

We ask all members to make NO more than 1 application for a loan within 6 months of each request.

** Same day loan transfer: Members with a Credit Union Current Account can benefit from our same day transfer service including share withdrawals and loan payments. The loan will be issued to your Credit Union Current Account on the date stated at the top of your Loan Agreement and is not transferred on the date of your application. Members must first complete their loan agreement, which states all terms and conditions of the loan, and return this to Voyager Alliance Credit Union before any loan will be released.

This is offered to all members up to the age of 69.

Life Insurance on loan balances does not cover members over the age of 69.
