SCUBA Budgeting Accounts

Need help with keeping on top of your important bills?

A SCUBA account can help you keep up to date with your bills, by splitting up your money and paying your important bills automatically.

How does it work?

  • Your benefits, wages or other income are paid into your Sheffield Credit Union account.
  • Your SCUBA account splits up your money automatically:
    • Your bills get paid, on time, every time.
    • Some of your money can go directly into your savings - you decide how much.
    • The rest of your money goes into your bank.

How much does it cost?

A SCUBA account costs £5 per month.

Some housing providers in Sheffield may pay the fee for you, if you pay your rent through your SCUBA, including:

  • Sheffield City Council
  • Great Places
  • Whitehornes
  • Some other private landlords/lettings agents

Not everyone is eligible for this - you can check with your housing provider, or contact us.
