Our free employee benefit persuades members to prepare for the future with a flexible savings account which comes straight from their pay. Whether saving for a new car, a holiday, mortgage deposit or just a rainy day-we want to help you get there.
We have come a long way
We have been improving the monetary resilience of the Police, Prison Service and Armed forces since 2003. Police Credit Union is a not-for-profit monetary co-operative devoted to helping the police and law enforcement family- including serving and retired police officers/police staff and members of their households.
A growing credit union
We continued to grow in the early 2000s, as Merseyside Police Credit Union transferred engagements to Police Credit Union in 2003 and then by Northumbria Police Credit Union and Devon and Cornwall Constabulary in 2004.

Financially and socially, our figures make sound sense
Credit Unions rules mean we intend to pay a dividend on savings once a year to all their members.
Members savings are kept within the common bond and the capital is lent to other members to help them in return for a realistic rate of interest charged. By law, a credit union cannot currently charge more than an APR of 42,6% but again, the rate we charge is normally far less than this. We have payday loans, short-term loans and personal loans to choose from.
