Building Society Passbook


Evidence of where you live

You may bring these documents in to our offices when you join, and we will take copies as necessary, or you can send us copies in the post.


If you work for Enfield Council, you may exhibit the documents to Paul Bishop who is based at the UNISON offices at the Civic Centre.
