For more details about the rules governing your membership of Sheffield Credit Union, please see our Credit Union Rulebook and Financial Services Compensation Scheme information.

Proof of identity

Here is a full list of accepted documents.

This helps guard against identity theft and other problems.

We will copy these for our files and give them straight back to you. Or you can opt for the automated ID check on the form.

Alongside your application form, we will also need the following:

  • Your most recent three months' bank statements.
  • If you receive Universal Credit, a copy of your payment breakdown, showing the elements you receive and any deductions.
  • If you are Self-Employed, a copy of your most recent self-assessment tax return, or a letter from your accountant confirming your income.
