Credit Union savings are known as shares. Hence the return on savings is called a dividend. Each share has a value of €1. Savings provide the capital base for funding loans.


Credit Union members can rest easy in the assurance that their savings are safe. Credit Unions in Ireland affiliated to the Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) are secured in several ways:

  • All officials of Credit Unions whether volunteers or staff are fidelity bonded.
  • Members are guaranteed up to €100,000 under the Deposit Guarantee Scheme.
  • Members savings (subject to certain limits) are insured through Life Savings Insurance.
  • Full financial statements are available on request.
  • Annual independently audited returns are lodged with the relevant authority, The Central Bank of Ireland.
