Summer Savings Club terms and Conditions
Important information about this product
- You need to be an RMT Credit Union member to open a Summer Savings Club Account.
- You have to save at least £5 per month into a RMT CU account in addition to your RMT Summer Savings Club Account.
- You pay a weekly, monthly or 4-weekly Direct Debit consisting of your nominated Summer Savings Club payment (min. £10) plus at least £5 per month to your main RMT CU account. Summer Savings Club payments will run from June to June each year.
- Summer Savings Club accounts have to be opened by the end of August. Late applications commence payments the following June.
- As an RMT CU member you build up regular savings with a yearly dividend and you can apply for a low interest rate loan.
- Your Summer Savings Club money is separate from your regular savings account. That means you will have a guaranteed sum available for summer holidays maturing every 2nd week in June, plus a savings account growing with time.
- The Summer Savings Club secures your money so it’s there for the summer holidays period. This means that your money is locked-in and you can make no withdrawals until on or after the 2nd week of June when all of your money, plus bonus will be paid out.
- If you cancel your payments the dividend is not applied and you cannot withdraw your money until after the 2nd week of June. If you think you will need access to your money before the 2nd week of June, this account is not suitable for you.
- The Summer Savings Club will continue year-on-year, so payments after the 2nd week of June start the next year’s account. Of course if you wish to cancel your payments you are free to do so at any time.
