Become a Payroll Partner
Our payroll savings scheme is a fantastic way to help your staff to get into the habit of saving money on a regular basis. We are always happy to speak to employers that are thinking about partnering with us to deliver CLEVR Money services to their staff, as a free of charge benefit.
✔ Members’ savings are protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme
✔ Provide an accessible way for your staff to improve their financial resilience
✔ Promote responsible saving and affordable credit amongst staff
✔ Increase your corporate social responsibility
✔ We provide marketing materials to promote the scheme to your staff
Join the many UK employers already offering staff a payroll deduction savings and loans scheme.
Employees that enroll onto the Payroll Deduction Scheme will automatically become a member of CLEVR Money, and their savings can be withdrawn upon demand.
Our primary objective is to promote sound financial management by encouraging responsible savings and giving access to affordable credit.
Over time, members savings can build up and end the cycle of borrowing.
All services are managed directly by us and we accept full liability for the operation of the scheme.
All enquiries are dealt with by us, payroll changes, withdrawal requests and loan applications are made through our office.

“We are proud that many of Preston City Council’s workforce have signed up to save regularly with CLEVR Money credit union, a not-for-profit savings and loans co-operative. Not only do we want credit union membership to grow internally we actively promote CLEVR with many of our partners and to the wider community.
“CLEVR Money promotes sound financial management by encouraging responsible savings and giving access to affordable low-cost credit.
“This form of banking is particularly important as we go forward through the cost of living crisis and so we are very glad our staff are able to support the co-operative in this way.”
Councillor Matthew Brown, Leader of Preston City Council
“CLEVR Money is an ethical organisation with the financial well-being of the local community at its heart. By offering affordable lending to its members, CLEVR helps to steer people away from less scrupulous lenders and the difficulties that can create.
The credit union also helps Blackpool Housing Company colleagues to save regularly direct from payroll, promoting good saving habits and supporting the wider work of the Credit Union.”
Lee Burrell, Director of Development at Blackpool Housing Company
“As a community-focused organisation working hard to help people improve their lives, it makes sense to offer our own staff services which can help them too. The credit union savings scheme is ideal for our employees to put something away for a rainy day and it’s good to know there are ethical loans available too if needed.”
Julia Hutchings, Business & Governance Manager at Renaissance
What if my employer isn't a payroll partner?
If you are an employee of a company that is not currently a payroll partner, and you would like them to join our payroll scheme, let us know!
We are happy to contact your employer to tell them about the scheme and how it can help their staff.
Supporting employees during the Cost of Living Crisis: A guide
There is help available for employers wanting to help their staff during the current cost of living crisis.
Several organisations have created directories outlining the support on offer.
We’ve linked to those directories here and pulled out some highlights.
One of the key things employers can do is become a Payroll Partner organisation of CLEVR Money and promote membership of the credit union among employees.
This will give staff the tools to help them with their finances.
Our loans are designed to help people out of debt in the longer term, rather than trap them into a spiral which causes further financial heartache and stress, which we know can lead to mental health issues and affect their ability to work and maintain their living standards.
