Insurance Benefits

Get Peace of Mind Knowing Your Money is Safe

All members’ savings are insured at no direct cost to the member.

When you join Manchester Credit Union you will be required to complete a Nomination Form which informs us who you have nominated as your beneficiary.  The beneficiary does not have to be your next of kin and can be more than one person. You can change your beneficiary at any time.

Life Savings Cover

In the event of your death or total and permanent disability, deposits made before your 65th birthday will get 100% cover.  Anything deposited between the ages of 65 and 80 will get 25%.
