About Teachers Building Society
Teachers Building Society was founded in 1966 by the National Union of Teachers (now the National Education Union) to help teachers and other education professionals onto the property ladder and provide a safe haven for their savings. Today, the Teachers Building Society offers a wide range of mortgage options to teaching professionals as well as a variety of competitive savings options which are available to all.
As a mutual organisation, Teachers Building Society is run solely for the benefit of their members, rather than shareholders. This means that instead of paying dividends to shareholders, they invest their profits back into the products and services they offer, ensuring that their mortgage and savings rates are as competitive as possible.
The FSCS protects deposits made into savings accounts offered by Teachers Building Society through our marketplace, and Teachers Building Society is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
