Proud to serve over 29,000 members
Owned by and run for our members.
Each credit union has a ‘field of membership’ which is based on either where you live or work – this determines who can become a member.
Prison CU is a trading name of Police Credit Union, originally set up by the police, for serving and retired police officers/police staff and members of their households.
It now serves the wider protective services including prison officers, probation officers and members of the armed forces.
The free employee benefit aims to improve the financial resilience of our members, helping them to save straight from their pay. We are also there to help if our members ever need a loan – providing an ethical alternative to other financial providers.
With over 29,000 members, we operate from regional branch offices covering the protective services in England and Wales. For more information on Police Credit Union branch offices, please contact us.
Police Credit Union operates under the terms of the Co-operatives and Community Benefit Act Societies 2014 and the Credit Union Act 1979. It is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and The Prudential Regulation Authority, the same bodies that cover banks and building societies.
The aims of a credit union are to:
We offer simple, secure financial services to meet the needs of those who serve and protect. Our easy access regular savings accounts pay a return in the form of an annual dividend. Savings are made directly from pay where available and by Direct Debit in others.
We also offer life cover, at no extra cost.
