The credit union organises this with your employer. Your employer will know the full amount of your payment to the credit union however they will not have any specific information as to what account or accounts the funds are going to. If you do not work for one of our sponsoring employers, we have Direct Debit facilities in place. For Direct Debits, you can choose your payment frequency and your preferred payment day or date.
Can I make extra payments?
Yes, we can accept deposits by cheque and by debit card. Please make cheques payable to ‘Capital Credit Union’ and ensure you write your name, member number and details of the account(s) you wish the additional funds to go to clearly on the back of the cheque.
