What is CU@WORK?

CU@WORK is designed to provide you with a great way to save and repay loans directly at source from your wages or salary.

Your loan repayment or the amount you decide save can be automatically deducted from your pay and lodged into your designated Credit Union account with the deduction itemised on your payslip (you may have deduction already for VHI, Pension etc). This service enables you to manage your finances, build up your savings and develop a good credit history
