Whether you’re saving for something in the future or for a ‘rainy day’, regular saving is a good idea. When it’s with Member First Credit Union, it’s an even better idea. With us, you’re not just a customer. You’re a member and part-owner of a successful financial cooperative. How about that for a feather in your cap? There’s also the bonus of knowing that your savings are being used to make loans to other members. Members just like you.
The Share Account is the most popular of the saving accounts we offer. Each member of Member First Credit Union holds shares, making them part-owner of the credit union.
Once you join and open a share account you may be eligible to open one of our deposit accounts below, subject to terms and conditions. Contact your local branch for more information.
This is an on-demand non-interest earning account. There is no minimum amount that members have to save. You can lodge and withdraw savings from this account at any time, as they are not held against a loan. What’s more, there are no penalties and no charges.
How do I open one of these accounts?
You need to have a share account with the Credit Union first before being eligible to open this account. Call in or contact us on the details below and we’ll talk you through all of the details and terms & conditions. Please note though, you may be asked to provide proof of your PPSN and photo ID.

This can represent a saving to some members who would normally be liable for tax at the highest marginal rate.
All of the savings of our members are guaranteed up to a maximum of €100,000 under the Government Deposit Guarantee Scheme. Information on the scheme is available at depositguarantee.ie.
