Opening an account, whether it is to make a deposit or to sign for a loan, is easy and can be done through the ‘open an account’ tab on homepage. When you follow this link you will reach a pop-up which asks you to confirm you are eligible for membership. In the middle of this page is a link ‘click here’ this will take you through to the first stage of the membership application form where you will be asked to state the capacity in which you think you are eligible for membership, and when completing the form you will need to supply your passport and/or driver’s licence details. You will then be asked to pay £10 to complete the process. This represents a £5 administration fee which is non-refundable and £5 as your initial savings deposit.
