Housing loans are always cheaper if you are a member  

You automatically receive a discount on the margin of your housing loan. As a member of the union, your housing loan will be cheaper than if you were not a member.*

Housing loans without fees – save at least 300 euros

You will not be charged delivery or handling fees on your housing loan. These usually amount to 0.60% of the loan capital and at least 300 euros.

Up to 50% off daily banking services

You can receive a 25–50% discount on the monthly fee for your daily banking package as long as you are paying your housing loan.** Your daily banking package includes two accounts, two cards and bank identifiers, for example.

Instalment-free periods without fees – save 180 euros each time

You can apply for instalment-free periods of 4 to 12 months without delivery fees***, saving you at least 180 euros for each period. You can use these instalment-free periods however you like whenever you need more financial flexibility, for example to spend time with your family, to improve your skills through further education, or simply to save up for an important purchase.

Pick a payment programme that suits your lifestyle

You can choose when you want to begin reducing your loan. In this way you will have more money at the start to furnish your apartment, pay for your new lifestyle or simply save up for the future. You can set fixed instalment levels that increase incrementally for the first five years of your loan.

Example of how you can benefit from stepped instalment levels:

  1. Monthly instalments for first two years: €500
  2. Monthly instalments for third year: €750
  3. Monthly instalments for remaining loan period: €1000

Up to 2-3 instalment levels can be used. The monthly payments must be fixed equal instalments. An approved credit decision is always required before a loan can be granted.
