May Loans Delays

We have had exceptional growth again this May, with more people joining Advance Credit Union than ever!

There is currently a delay in processing the high volume of loan applications, don't worry - we haven't forgotten you, but it may take up to 9 days to receive your loan offer.

Members receive a text message or phone call when their loan decision is made, and we will email your loan agreement and repayment schedule so you can see exactly how much your repayments are and when your loan is fully paid. 

We are working as fast as we can and will contact members with loan decisions when available. Phoning to chase your decision can cause delays so best to be patient.

As always it really helps if we receive full information so loans can be processed without unnecessary delays:

  • Loan Application completed in full and honestly
  • Three month's bank statements. 
  • Valid ID and proof of address if you are a new member or if requested

Missing information will cause your loan application to be delayed.

Solihull Council

Payroll deduction is open to all employees of Solihull Council, if you have heard about us in your team briefing then read on, you are in the right place! 

Saving by Payroll Deduction is the easy way to save. There will be an extra deduction on your payslip called 'credit union', you decide how much to save each month and it is deducted from your payslip and credited to your credit union savings. It is so easy, you won't even notice, and it is amazing how quickly your savings grow! 

How much could you save? We recommend that you first complete a budget planner to see how much you can afford to save regularly. We recommend that you start with a small, manageable amount that you won't miss too much. Also, why not put part of your savings into our Christmas Club?

You can join online and tell us you want to pay by payroll deduction, or complete and return the payroll deduction membership application form and we will set this up for you.
