We are working hard to maintain the best service we can for you. As you can imagine our telephone lines are exceptionally busy at the moment. So we are asking for your help too.
In the interests of the health of both our customers and our staff, please avoid visiting our branches unless necessary. Please telephone your local branch direct if you have any queries or to register to use our online services.
To reduce the risk to our branch staff and customers, branch opening hours have temporarily be reduced to 9am - 1pm Monday to Friday and 9am – 12pm Saturdays.
We have also temporarily reduced our telephone opening hours at Principal Office to 9am - 3.30pm Monday to Friday and 9am – 12pm Saturdays. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
We understand that some customers may be worried about the effect that contracting the Coronavirus (COVID-19) could have on their finances, for example due to a drop in income as a result of contracting the virus or because of the measures imposed to stop it spreading. If you have any concerns about how this could affect you and your mortgage, please click here to read the leaflet produced by the Building Societies Association and National Debtline or please get in touch on 01664 414141.

The Society is aware of fraudsters using the Coronavirus outbreak to try and trick people into parting with their money. Here are four types of fraudulent activity that we are aware of:
Fixed returns on your savings, ideal if you are looking for a regular income. A savings account allows you to earn money on your savings in the form of interest. Saving for a longer period means that your money grows quicker because you don’t just earn interest on the money you originally save, you also earn interest on the interest – this is known as ‘compound interest’.
Our Fixed Rate Savings accounts give you a regular income through interest earnt, but no withdrawals are allowed during the fixed rate period. Interest, payable at the end of each month, can be added to the account, transferred to your bank account or transferred to an existing Melton savings account.
Take a look at our Handy Guide to making the most of your savings.

How safe are your savings?
You may be worried that if you tie your money up in a savings account, it won’t be protected. However, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme is an independent body that serves as a last resort to cover most deposits, including savings, up to the value of £85,000. So, if for some reason your bank or building society failed, your money is protected by the FSCS.
