Opening a Current Account

Current Account, from your trusted credit union is a full service account that allows you to access a range of facilities, such as receiving  your salary, paying bills setting up direct debits and standing orders to make regular payments. You can operate your account online and using the mobile app.

With Current Account, from your credit union, you get a dedicated IBAN (International Bank Account Number). You also get a Mastercard Debit Card with Contactless payments which allows you instant access to your money so you can make a payment or withdraw money whenever or wherever you need.

You can open a Current Account in your sole name or in joint names with another person if you are a member of the Credit Union and resident in the Republic of Ireland.   If you are aged between 12 and 16 years of age, we require the consent of your parent or guardian for you to open an Account.

* Credit unions all around the country are introducing the current account service for their members. To find a credit union offering Current Account, click here.

If you are registered online with your credit union, you can open a Current Account in your sole name online. Simply click here and we’ll help you to open your Current Account

If you are not registered online or wish to open a joint account, you will both need to drop into your credit union office.

To open your Current Account either online or in your credit union office, you will require one proof of identity and one proof of address.

Acceptable Proof of Identity:

A joint account can be opened but not online. Both parties to the account must call into your credit union office with their proof of identity and proof of address to sign the application form.

Once your Current Account is opened you will receive a welcome letter from your credit union detailing your BIC and IBAN. You will need your IBAN to arrange to have your salary, benefits or other payments paid into your account and to set up payment of bills by direct debit etc.

If you are registered for online access your Current Account is immediately available to view and use online or on the mobile app. If you are not already registered for online access, you can register or visit your local Credit Union.
