The Cumberland Building Society was established on 16 April 1850 as the Cumberland Co-operative Land and Benefit Building Society. It has its headquarters in Carlisle, Cumbria, England. It is the 20th largest in the United Kingdom based on total assets of £1.55 billion as at 31 March 2013. The first branch was opened 100 miles south of Cumberland in Preston, Lancashire. It is a member of the Building Societies Association.
The society offers a range of products including: savings accounts; mortgages; investment accounts; loans and further loans; financial services; insurance products; lending to commercial enterprises, through the Commercial Lending division; and Internet Banking.
Other than Nationwide Building Society, Cumberland is the only other society to offer a full current account service with ATMs, Visa cards and Internet Banking. It also offers fee-free foreign currency transactions. In 2014 the Cumberland became the first UK building society to offer a mobile payments service linked to a mobile phone number, called Pay2Mobile. It became part of the national Paym mobile payments service later that year.
