Join & Save

Membership of Stockport Credit Union is open to anyone who lives or works in any of the SK postcodes (includes Stockport, Glossop and Macclesfield).

If your employer is a member of our payroll scheme, you can also save directly through your wages and salary.

Once you join we will open a Savings Account for you. As a member of Stockport Credit Union every £1 you save with us counts as a ‘share’. You and the other members are shareholders in Stockport Credit Union which allows you to vote at the AGM. Each member has 1 vote, no matter how much is saved.

Stockport Credit Union is a social enterprise so any surplus we make is reinvested back into the organisation so we can further improve the products and services we offer, or is paid out as a dividend to members with savings balances. You can find out more about how it works on our governance pages.
