Universal Credit - Getting a Bank Account

If you’re thinking of opening a bank account, have you considered your local Credit Union? Boom is a credit union for people who live or work in Surrey, Kingston or West Sussex, which gives local people access to affordable loans, bank accounts and prepaid cards.

A basic classic engage current account with Boom costs £2 per month and comes with a handy budgeting tool. You can also earn cash back rewards and Boom will set up a savings account alongside your current account. There are no credit checks and simple ID requirements.

The account is ideal for anyone who may need to claim Universal Credit [read more about this on page 4]. For more information visit www.boomcu.com/Engage-Classic or call Catherine 01483 9917958 Monday to Thursday or leave a message.
