Select CHQ


Important Change

Transition to our new banking system in 2018 may see a change for some of you when selecting the account option at ATM’s or EFTPOS Terminals.

If you are currently selecting ‘SAV’ you will now need to select ‘CHQ’.

For those members who have access to two different accounts with your Accesscard or Accessdebit Card the CHQ/SAV options for you will not change.

Merry Christmas Foster Hope Otago

All these presents have us super excited for Christmas! We had our Christmas Elves working overtime to arrange a bundle of presents to be donated to the children of Foster Hope Otago. Through the generous donations of our Dunedin staff, we managed to get a variety of gifts that will be wrapped up and given to the children on Christmas Day. NZCU South are proud supporters  of Foster Hope – Otago and we encourage all of our members to go check out their Facebook page and support them too.

Comprehensive Credit Reporting; the Nuts & Bolts

A credit score is fundamentally your financial CV that tells whether you are worthy of taking on credit. A Comprehensive Credit Report is a balanced review of your credit history looking at both the negative and the positive. This is good news if you’re wanting to apply for credit, which you will almost inevitably do at some point.


Need to Improve Your Credit Score? A Debt Consolidation Loan Might Be Your Saviour

A debt consolidation loan, which is a loan that consolidates your debt into one easy manageable loan, could be the tool that could help you improve your credit score.


Credit Score; your form guide. Would you back yourself?

Your Credit Score matters. Whether you are facing the prospect of applying for a mortgage for your first home, indeed a personal loan, credit card or even a new job, your credit score tells the story of you. A credit score provides an account of your history, dependability and control. Effectively, whether you are worthy in the eyes of financial institutions, prospective landlords, and employers alike when deciding to offer you credit, a tenancy, or even a job.


Avoid the New Year Hangover With a Debt Consolidation Loan

Christmas presents, New Year accommodation, travel expenses and slush funds. It’s these expenses that we are preparing for as the joyous holiday season fast approaches. With all these cost burdens falling at once, we tend to reach out to our credit cards and debit cards to help us through. But relying on this option alone, doesn’t always pay off.
