- Any money that you save at PCCU is protected by the FSCS up to £85,000.
- The money you save is secure in your account; however behind the scenes we pool all the savings. It is from this common pool of savings that we issue loans at affordable rates to members.
- Your money is safe in your personal account however many account holders are happy that their savings are helping other people in their community to access loans at affordable interest rates.
- The interest gained from the loans issued then goes back into paying the expenses of operating PCCU, the remaining profit is then returned to the account holders annually in the form of a dividend. It does not matter if you have £5 or £5,000 you will received the same rate of dividend.
