Nomination of Your Credit Union Account

Nomination of Your Credit Union Account

This is a unique facility for all credit union members. Credit unions have a nomination facility whereby if you are over 16 years of age, you can nominate someone to receive the property of your credit union accounts upon your death. A Nomination is a legally binding, written instruction that tells the Credit Union what to do with your money after your death. The Member completes a Nomination Form, which allows the member (nominator) to nominate a person/persons (nominees) to become entitled to any properties in the credit union in the event of death. This is of benefit if the member dies without leaving a will as the property left in the credit union will not have to pass through the sometimes timely intestacy process.

You may nominate a person(s) of your choice to receive your property presently up to a maximum value of €27,000 in Republic of Ireland. Any amount in excess of €27,000 will form part of your estate.

You may change the details of the nomination of your credit union account as often as you like. You must sign and witness your completed nomination form. Ask in the office and a staff member will help you complete the relevant form and witness your signature. The most recent nomination is the valid nomination.

A nomination is not revocable or variable by the terms of your will or by a codicil to your will.

The nominated property does not form part of a deceased person’s estate.

Your nomination is automatically revoked when your nominee dies before you. In this case, you should consider completing a new nomination. If you do not, your property in the credit union may form part of your estate.

Where your personal circumstances change, for example marriage, divorce or separation) you should review your nomination at that time.

A nomination of your credit union account is automatically revoked by your subsequent marriage.

Please ensure you fill out your nomination form and keep it up to date.
