IYour credit union has a range of savings instruments into which you can deposit your money at attractive, competitive interest rates. These savings instruments include share accounts, regular savings accounts, term deposits and Golden Harvest savings accounts. Excellent investment opportunities are also available at the Credit Union Fund Management Company.
It’s also a good time for credit union members to buy into the Family Indemnity Plan and ensure that they have money in place for final expenses for their family. Contact your credit union and ask about these and other products and services.
IN 2017, the Credit Union Movement will celebrate 75 years since the introduction of this group of co-operative financial institutions to Jamaica. The Jamaica Co-operative Credit Union League (JCCUL), the trade association for the movement, will also celebrate 75 years of service to credit unions. Both milestones are worthy of celebration, and credit unions and JCCUL will do so during 2017 with a number of activities.
These commemorative activities will be launched at a carol service on December 15, 2016, and will be regarded as the first activity for the celebration of the 75th anniversary.
The Coral Service will be held at the Webster Memorial Church on HalfWay Tree Road in Kingston, commencing at 5:30 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend and it promises to be a carol service with a difference. The line-up of music talents will be impressive and participants can expect to enjoy traditional as well as contemporary Christmas songs/music.
Credit union volunteers, staff and members from all credit unions across Jamaica are being invited to share in this celebration of the longevity of the movement and to give thanks for its 75 years of existence.
In commemorating the 75th anniversary, the movement is expecting to pay homage to Father John P. Sullivan, the founder of the Jamaican movement, and also to recognise those who contributed to the growth and development of the movement over its 75 years.
At the carol service, details of the activities will be announced.
