How we protect your money

Just like your high street banks and building societies, the money you deposit into your credit union account, up to £85,000, is protected under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). If you have a joint account you will be protected for £85,000 each.

FSCS protection is free to customers, so if anything happens to your bank, building society or credit union, and you cannot access your money, the FSCS will refund you up to the amount of £85,000.

I wanted to join a Christmas Savings scheme to save up a little bit of money to buy my kids' presents. Wyvern Savings and Loans have been the perfect choice and now I've enough saved already to start thinking about what I'm going to buy them.
