A Financial Lifeline                                                                  

Our Flexiloan Account is an alternative way to borrow from your Credit Union and all members are eligible to apply as long as they have made at least one payment to their Membership account either through salary deduction or direct debit.  

Ideal for those of you who have a need for small but regular borrowing without the need to complete a new loan application every time you need funds.

A great way to cover those everyday emergencies such as your car failing its MOT or your washing machine breaking down, giving you that financial lifeline when you need it most.

A great alternative for members who find themselves in circumstances where they are thinking of or have accessed payday loans and are paying exorbitant rates of interest. 

This is an additional loan product and can run alongside our more traditional standard and special loan products.

Remember, if you are experiencing financial difficulties we are here to help and as a member you can access our confidential money advice service by calling 0141 771 1314 and asking for a money advisor. 

 How It Works

  • 5 credit limits between £500 and £2500 available in intervals of £500
  • Only commitment is to pay at least the minimum payment applicable to the chosen limit.
  • Choose to pay more than the minimum amount when applying for your limit or increase your payment at any time while your Flexiloan is active.
  • Increase or decrease your limit at any time (if decreasing your limit any outstanding balance must be brought to level equal to or less than the new limit being applied for).
  • Payment Waiver applicable to this loan product.

Payment Waiver (Applicable on Flexiloans from 15/01/14)

Payment waiver is our great loan insurance cover and comes as a feature of your Flexiloan, at no extra cost to you.

If you are unable to work due to an accident or sickness you can claim on your payment waiver insurance to make your loan repayments for up to 18 months (terms & conditions apply).

This means no arrears build up, your credit rating is not affected and your loan continues to reduce while you are off work. Ask about Payment Waiver when applying for your Flexiloan.

Getting access to funds

When your Flexiloan account has been approved accessing funds is simple. There are two methods available to withdraw funds.

Method 1

  • All Flexiloan account holders are issued with a small book of withdrawal slips which can be completed and returned to the Credit Union office.
  • Funds will be transferred on the day of receipt if received before 3.30pm Monday to Thursday and 2.30pm on a Friday.
  • Requests received after this time or during weekends and public holidays will be processed on the first available working day. The minimum amount you may withdraw is £50.

Method 2

  • Flexiloan account holders who have registered to our secure members area have the ability to request a transfer of funds from their Flexiloan using the online withdrawal process.
  • If you have not already registered for online access to your Credit Union accounts you can do so here. 
  • Online Flexiloan withdrawal requests received by 3.30pm will be processed on the day of receipt. Requests received after 3.30pm or received during a weekend or public holiday will be processed on the first available working day. The minimum amount you may withdraw is £50.

We use the faster payments system in both cases and aim to have your money in your account the same day we transfer your funds, please note however this is not guaranteed.
