Do I need to prove my income?

As part of the application processing we may ask you to provide proof of regular income such as a recent bank statement and/or pay slip.

What’s the credit limit?

At present you can choose a credit limit of either £1,000 or £2,000.

When and how can I withdraw from my Flexi Credit?

Any time you wish to. Simply telephone us to request a Flexi Credit Withdrawal and we will transfer the funds to your bank account by BACS within 2-3 working days.

Can I apply for the Flexi Credit if I have a HEYCU loan?

Yes. We will consider each application on its merits.

Do you offer joint Flexi Credit accounts?

Not currently.

How much will my repayments be?

Repayments are calculated based on your credit limit and will stay fixed no matter how much you withdraw from your Flexi Credit account. This will be reflected on your Credit Agreement.

How do I make repayments on my Flexi Credit?

Directly from your wage or salary with our Payroll Deduction Scheme.

How often must I make repayments?

Repayments are made at the same frequency as you get paid, normally monthly or weekly.

When do my repayments start?

We don’t request a repayment while your credit limit remains untouched. Once you make your first withdrawal, we will request a repayment by payroll deduction.

How do I make repayments if I leave my employment?

As you will still be liable to make your repayments, you will need to select an alternative method of payment such as bank standing order or Direct Debit.

Can I continue to withdraw from my Flexi Credit if I leave my employment?

Yes.

What interest do I pay?

19.6% APR.

How is interest applied?

It is applied to your loan daily and calculated on the outstanding balance.

What term do I repay my Flexi Credit over?

There is no maximum term as this is a revolving credit account. The account will be subject to review every 2 years and you will be able to apply for a new Loan Agreement. We reserve the right to withdraw the facility at any time.

What happens if I close my Flexi Credit account?

The outstanding balance will become repayable and restrictions on further withdrawals will apply.

Are there any penalties or hidden charges for closing my Flexi Credit account?

No.

How often will I get a statement?

Statements are provided upon request, or you can check your balance by registering with us on our website.

Can I still save with the Credit Union if I have Flexi Credit?

Yes. We encourage members to save regularly.

What if I miss a payment?

We hold the rights to deduct your Flexi Credit payments from your savings.

What if I cannot afford my repayments?

Get in touch with our Credit Control department to discuss a reduced payment plan. Failure to keep up repayments could have a serious effect on your credit report.

Your Flexi Credit may be covered by our free Members’ Death Benefit Scheme
