Another First for Newry Credit Union

Newry Credit Union has again demonstrated how it is at the forefront of innovation in the financial services sector by being the first regional Credit Union to offer a downloadable app which allows account holders to transfer money and pay bills on their smart phone. With only one Credit Union in Belfast currently offering this service Newry’s 18,000 members will now have access to the latest Credit Union technology. The will be able to download the app and transfer money from their shares to any other financial institution to pay bills or transfer internally to other accounts in the Credit Union. The apps also gives users access to their balance on the go and transaction information in real time. Brendan Jackson, Manager of Newry Credit Union said: “This another move by Newry Credit Union to give our members services above and beyond what they would ever expect from any financial institution. Early feedback has confirmed that the app is comparable if not better than similar products offered by banks. This app service comes on the back of Newry being the first Credit Union in Ireland to offer a current account with an ATM card and Visa Debit facilities.” Brendan Jackson added: “Next year we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary year. During that time we have worked with and on behalf of members to offer the very latest technology and services to help them manage their finances whether this is in saving or when in need of financial support through our loan service or money management guidance. We are delighted to have announced this new app service at our AGM where we were also able to give all savers a 2 per cent dividend on their shares and members with a loan a 21 per cent rebate on interest paid. This financial return so close to Christmas helps to demonstrate why so many people right across Northern Ireland chose to be part of their local Credit Union.” Newry Credit Union app is now available to download for free for Newry Credit Union members on Android Market for android phones or in the Apple Store for iPhone devices.
