How salary deduction is improving financial resilience

Over 90% of Serve & Protect members said saving with repayments from their salary helped to improve their financial resilience

Serve & Protect is a free employee benefit which is there to help its members save, but also be there for them if they ever need to borrow throughout their career. The credit union supports over 33,000 members across the Police, Prison, Military, Fire and Health services, with £62 million in savings and £47 million out on loan.
