What are Credit Unions?

A credit union is a self-help non-for-profit cooperative in which members combine their savings to offer each other low-interest credit. Credit Unions are established to cater to the financial needs of their members. Membership in a credit union requires a shared connection among its members, which can include:
  • Residing or working within the same geographical area
  • Being employed by the same organisation
  • Belonging to the same church, trade union, or another association

What is Crime and Fidelity Insurance?

This specialised insurance can help to protect businesses and organisations from the financial repercussions that can arise from these unfortunate events.

By obtaining Crime and Fidelity Insurance, business owners and organisations can take proactive measures to safeguard their financial interests and mitigate the risks associated with employee-related crimes.

Why do Credit Unions need Crime and Fidelity Insurance?
