In Light of the Corona Virus Outbreak (COVID-19)

We would like to reassure all our members that First Choice Credit Union fully intends to remain open for all our Members. Having said this we do still highly recommend that all our members take up the option of using our Telephone Authorisation Facility.  Once you have set this up it will save you from having to make the trip to one of our offices in order to withdraw money and have it transferred   to   you  bank  or  building   society   account. 

This could prove extremely useful if you are in isolation due to the Corona Virus (COVID-19) or if travel and/or work restrictions are put in place.

      In order to do this you must complete one of our Telephone Authorisation Forms and either email it through to us at:  firstchoicecu@btconnect.com   or drop it in at one of our offices.

You can upload a copy of the form via this link: www.firstchoicecu/telephonewithdrawalauthorisation or alternatively you can complete a copy of the form in any of our offices.

If you have any questions about this or if there is anything which you think we may be able to help you with then please contact us and one of our friendly team will do their best to help.
