NE First Credit Union was formed by the merger of a number of smaller North East based Credit Unions who have been providing savings and loan accounts for their members for more than twenty years.
NEFirst Credit Union covers the whole of the North East. Anyone who lives or works in the North East is eligible to join.
The benefits of being a member of NEFirst include:
- access to straightforward and secure savings accounts;
- the availability to members of loans at interest rates that are much lower than many loan providers (especially door stop lenders, pay-day loan companies and pawn brokers);
- free life insurance on savings and loans.*
Meadows Outreach Collections are held in the Meadows every Tuesday from 12.30-1.30pm with someone to answer all your queries, open new accounts, update you on your balance or take deposits.
