Membership fees

The Board has taken the decision to charge membership fees in order to assist with administrative costs. This will maximise the amount of money available for member services.

Each member will be charged an initial joining fee of £5. Junior members (members between 16 & 18 years of age) will be charged a reduced membership joining fee of £2.50 as they are not eligible to apply for loans. Junior savers (members under 16 years of age) will not be charged a membership joining fee.

In subsequent years an annual membership fee of £2, as of 1st October 2017, will be charged to members to assist with administration costs.

All fees are reviewed by the Board of Directors on an annual basis.

Other fees

Members should also be aware that any transaction charges incurred by PCS credit union where a member is considered to be at fault will be passed onto the member. One example of this could be if a cheque is paid in that subsequently bounces.
