Together, we can make your financial goals a fantastic reality.
Benefits of Membership
Simple and seamless. You could join us and start getting more from your money today. You can apply for a loan the same day as you join. You just need to have a PayPal account or valid debit card to make an initial deposit (minimum £5). Joining takes no more than 10 minutes. Please Note: There is currently a recurring membership charge of 25p a week which will be deducted from your share balances four weekly.
To join our credit union, you will need to live or work within our common bond. You can join our Credit Union online or download a paper form and send it to 61/63 Austin Street, Ipswich, IP2 8DF.
You can check if you are eligible and what identity documents we require on the next tabs.
We will ask you to pay a small one-off membership fee to join ESLCU. Currently that is £2. You will need to deposit at least £3 to your account to become a member, making a total of £5. You will always need to keep at least £5 in your account while you are a member, but you can have it back if you leave the Credit Union. There is currently a recurring membership charge of 25p a week which will be deducted from your share balances four weekly.
Once you have confirmed that you are eligible and you can prove your identity, you can complete our online Membership application form.
Please note if your account is not used and has no balance, we will close the account after three months. We will make every effort to send you a text if your account balance falls below £2.00.
