    16. When will be the remaining 25% Dividend be paid?

    • A Dividend is normally payable only if a Resolution for the payment and percentage dividend is approved by the members in attendance at an AGM;
    • Earlier this year, the Commissioner for Co-operative Development’s (CCD) office considered, and finally approved a provision where subject to their individual approval, Credit Unions who meet certain criteria can make an interim Dividend payment of up to 75% of the Dividend that is proposed by the Credit Union;
    • NMCU has already paid an interim Dividend that consists of 75% of the proposed Dividend for the Financial Year ending December 31st, 2019. Hence, the remaining 25% of the proposed Dividend will be paid shortly after Members in attendance at the 67th AGM approve a Resolution for the Dividend.
