Benefits of the Budget Booster

Short-Term Help

The Budget Booster is designed for short-term borrowing needs and for temporary financial shortfalls or to use in emergencies.

Borrow Wisely

Consider accessing funds periodically and take out money only when you really need it, not the whole amount at once.

Flexible Access

Optimal use involves accessing a portion of the credit limit. Get funds when you need them, not all at once. It’s like a safety net for your money and this will help with financial stability.

Talk About Long-Term Needs

While the Budget Booster is primarily designed for short-term needs, Members have the option to discuss long-term borrowing requirements with us if you need money for a longer time. Speak with a member of the team and we can discuss options together.

Repay and Stay Ready

Pay back what you borrowed quicker keeps your safety net full and ready for the next time you need it, enhancing your financial resilience.

As a member of the credit union your borrowing is protected by our Loan Protection and Life Savings insurances.
