Provident Society background

What exactly is the Kent Reliance Provident Society (KRPS)?


Kent Reliance Provident Society (KRPS) is a mutual organisation that was formed as part of the transfer of Kent Reliance Building Society's business to OneSavings Bank plc (OSB). Members of what was Kent Reliance Building Society (KRBS) were transferred to the provident society, with some exceptions.

The provident society currently serves two primary roles: to act as a parent organisation of Kent Reliance alongside OneSavings Bank, and to operate its own business for the benefit of KRPS members. KRPS actively encourages feedback from its members in order to ensure customer input is used to inform improvements within the bank.

KRPS and Customer Benefits


Each month one member of KRPS will receive £1,000 as part of a prize draw. The society also makes a monthly donation to a charitable programme, administered by the Kent Community Foundation (KCF).

All Kent Reliance account holders are eligible to join. More information is available on the Provident Society's website.
