Join our Credit Union with Eastern Savings & Loans
Haverhill’s Eastern Savings and Loans Credit Union, based at Havebury Housing Partnership’s office in High Street, Haverhill, has re-opened after welcoming the addition of Peter Tatam. Peter has become the Credit Union’s new Business Development officer after receiving funding from the Haverhill Town Council.
The credit union is now determined on raising its profile in the area, and in doing so help those who want to save money or looking to take out loans.
Why choose Eastern Savings and Loans?
You will be part of a savings and loans co-operative which provides financial services to people in the local area: people helping people through fair treatment and access to services that the high street banks can’t be bothered with.
How can the Credit Union help?
They specialise in helping you save for a ‘rainy day’. Members save for holidays, car insurance, MOT costs, a new washing machine or car and special events like weddings, birthdays etc — anything where you need your savings to be safe and you won’t be tempted to spend them.
Other Christmas clubs are not insured to protect your money. If you run or pay into a Christmas club, contact us to advise you how you can bring your scheme under our protection.
Personal Loans for members
They also offer loans to their members at different rates depending on your credit history, job and residency. They can also offer specialist loans to those needing a deposit or rent in advance when renting a new home - these members are often referred by one of our partner agencies.
Child Benefit Saving and Loan Plan
This allows members to apply for £500 repayable at £12 per week from Child Benefit and the remainder used to save. This can help families budget for essentials such as school uniform and equipment. This will also prevent people from using door stop or payday lenders. For more information, please take a look at the Eastern Savings & Loans Child Benefit Savings & Loan Plan.
