Our Top-up Loan is a great way to get the most from your savings. Whether you need that little extra for the big family holiday, your big DIY project or that car you've always wanted a loan from us might just be what you've been looking for.
If you've been saving with us for a period of 8 weeks and making regular deposits then you may be eligible to apply.
If you have either an Multiplier Loan or a Multiplier Plus Loan with us you could apply to top up your loan, provided that there has been 8 weeks between your last application and you've been meeting the repayments. Whilst you are repaying your loan you are also building up your savings meaning that you have some additional borrowing available if needed. If after 8 weeks you have a loan balance of £800 and a savings balance £700 we would double your savings and take away your loan balance to give us your Top-Up Loan of £600. Similar to our Unsecured Loan and Second Unsecured Loan your savings are held as security when your loan is issued and you can take advantage of your Credit Unions benefits:
- A great rate of 19.6% APR
- You can continue to build up your savings and attract a dividend whilst you repay
- Take full advantage of our Life Savings and Loan Protection Insurance*1 *2
- Spread the loan over 5 years
What do I get when I go Unsecured?
You'll receive all of the benefits of a Credit Union Loan:
- Free Loan Protection Insurance*2
- No set-up fees
- No admin charges
- No early repayment penalties
How do I apply?
Download our loan application form here or log into our member's area to start filling in your loan application. If you're applying online we'll need you to send us through your last three months bank statements and proof of your income i.e. your most recent wage slip or benefit letter. You can send this by email to email@example.com or by post to our main office. We'll call you when the loan is ready or if we need some more information, from there you'll need to drop by one of our offices to sign some paperwork.
If you're applying in one of our offices just fill in the loan application form, don't worry if you don't have a printer you can pick them up at any of our offices. We'll take your loan application and other supporting documents from you and from there we will be able to advise you on how long it may take us to process your application.
What do I need to bring with me?
Where a member applies for a top up loan for the first time, one month's proof of income documentation will be required.
Where a member applies for subsequent top ups, three month's proof of income documentation will be required every second top up.
You should also bring with you some form of ID to allow us to confirm your identity.
