      TUS:Midlands received the following message from State Savings:


      A decision has been made to discontinue the National Instalment Group Savings scheme service and to offer the participants within these Groups alternative methods to continue with their NIS Savings plan.

      The current cycle of Instalment Savings for Athlone IT is due for completion 30/04/2022.

      What does this mean for your members?

      If any members wish to continue with their NIS savings, they can commence a new Savings cycle by selecting either of the following options while maintaining their  existing NIS account number.

      1. Monthly Direct Debit from your Bank /Building Society Account to your NIS Account.
