London Mutual’s partnership with the Ministry of Defence (trading as Forces Finance) ensures that as a serving member of the Armed Forces, you can contribute directly from your salary or pension into your Credit Union savings account.

This exclusive financial well-being facility has been designed to ensure convenience in making regular and sustained contributions to your savings. By scheduling a certain amount each month, we help you in goal setting and planning for the future. We are well aware of sudden expense shocks, the temptation to spend and/or budgeting challenges that limit the ability to save easily and that’s why we give you the flexibility to save within your means. The amount you save each month doesn’t have to be fixed- you can increase or decrease it to match your future needs.
