Armagh Credit Union

Armagh Credit Union was founded in May 1962 in Handel House.  By January 1963 £500 in savings had been accumulated and the first loans were issued to members.

By the end of that year due to increased membership and a greater volume of business the Credit Union moved to Market Street.  The first manger was appointed in 1967 and the Credit Union purchased the old cinema in Russell Street from where it continues to operate its expanding business.

We now have over 7300 members with a share capital in excess of £15 million and loans issued in excess of £8.7 million.

Investing In the Community

Each year we undertake a number of events to try to encourage youth involvements in the Credit Union. Some of these events include the annual School Quiz and Poster competition. We also operate a School Savings Scheme and Smart Kids Savings Club.

Death Benefit Insurance available

For a premium of £19.47 per year, which is automatically deduced from your dividend, you obtain Death Benefit Insurance of £2500. This insurance is used to pay the funeral expenses. The insurance is available to all members who joined theCredit Union before their 70 birthday, and are in good health at time of joining

If you haven’t sufficient dividend to cover this premium, you can complete the appropriate form and pay the premium at the counter.

It is recommended that you retain a minimum of £1350 in shares in order to ensure you generate sufficient dividend to cover the premium each year.
