• The ability of a member over the age of 16 to nominate individuals to receive property in their credit union account on their death is a unique facility available for credit union members under the credit union legislation by which we operate. The nominated property does not form part of a deceased person’s estate.
• The member may nominate a person(s) of choice to receive their property (i.e. shares) in the credit union presently up to a maximum value of €12,700. Any amount in excess of this balance forms part of the member’s estate and must be dealt with in accordance with the law.
• The information relating to you, as nominee, has been provided to us by the member during their lifetime.
• A member may change the details of their nomination as often as they like during the course of their membership with the credit union. In addition, there may be instances where a nomination is revoked through marriage or civil partnership, or the death of the nominee before the nominating member. There is therefore no guarantee that a nomination will be valid until the member has passed away and the validity of the nomination is confirmed by the credit union. As such, we are unable to contact individuals directly to advise them that we are processing their information.
