What is a Credit Union AGM?
Unify is a financial co-operative that exists purely for the benefit of our members. We don’t have external shareholders that profit from what we do; every active member of the credit union is a shareholder so the people who profit are our members. The decisions we make, are made in order to meet the needs of our members and our community.
Our Annual General Meeting is a place for you to see how we are doing as a business and an opportunity for you to be involved in your Credit Union.
Do I get Interest on my Savings?
Unlike a bank account, when you join Unify, you join as a member, rather than a customer. This means that once we have paid for our bills and built up our reserves, every active member will get a share of our profits. This share of profits is called a ‘dividend’.
To qualify for the dividend you must have a minimum of £1 in your savings at the time of the AGM. The dividend is calculated on the money you held in your account during the previous financial year (1st October 2018 – 30th September 2019)
