How Are My Shares Affected?
When borrowing money from us, you are required to have a savings balance supported by regular deposits. This is required in order to ensure that collateral is in place against the balance of the loan. This means that your shares balance, up to and including the point where they match the balance of your loan, is inaccessible for withdrawal, until such times as the loan is paid down to less than the value of your shares.
You can always pay into your shares, however; just make sure your loan is paid up to date!
