Your money is safe and backed The National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund
Congress created the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund in 1970 to insure members' deposits in federally insured credit unions. Each credit union member has at least $250,000 in total coverage. Administered by the NCUA, the Share Insurance Fund insures individual accounts up to $250,000. Additionally, a member's interest in all joint accounts combined is insured up to $250,000.
The Share Insurance Fund has the backing of the full faith and credit of the United States.
Credit union members have never lost even a penny of insured savings at a federally insured credit union.
WHAT IS THE NCUA?
The National Credit Union Administration, commonly referred to as NCUA, is an independent agency of the United States government that regulates, charters, and supervises federal credit unions. NCUA also operates and manages the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF). Backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, the NCUSIF insures the accounts of millions of account holders in all federal credit unions and the vast majority of state-chartered credit unions.
DOES THE NCUSIF PROVIDE ADDITIONAL COVERAGE?
All members of federally insured credit unions have options for coverage that is separate from and in addition to the coverage available to their single ownership accounts.
Members with traditional and Roth Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and KEOGH retirement accounts at federally insured credit unions have additional coverage available at each federally insured credit union where they qualify and become members. The NCUSIF insures traditional and Roth IRAs for $250,000 in the aggregate at each credit union. Additionally, the NCUA insures KEOGH accounts separately in the aggregate to $250,000 at each credit union.
Retirement account insurance protection is separate and apart from insurance coverage on other credit union accounts. For example, if you have a regular share account, an IRA, and a KEOGH at the same credit union, the NCUSIF insures the regular share account for up to $250,000, the IRA for up to an additional $250,000, and the KEOGH for up to an additional $250,000.
Joint accounts are owned by two or more people who have equal rights to withdraw money from the account and no beneficiaries are named. These accounts can include regular shares, share drafts (similar to checking), money market accounts, and share certificates. The NCUSIF provides each joint account holder with $250,000 coverage for their aggregate interests at each federally insured credit union.
For example, a two person joint account with no beneficiaries has $500,000 in coverage. This coverage is separate from and in addition to the coverage available for other accounts such as individual accounts with no beneficiaries and retirement accounts
