Your shares at Members 1st Credit Union are federally insured. Share insurance coverage is provided by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an independent government agency that charters, regulates, and insures federal credit unions. Your shares are backed by our solid financial standing, however; the insurance protects members against loss if a federal credit union fails.

Joint accounts are owned by two or more members, to include your Members 1st Savings, Checking, Share Certificates, and Money Market Accounts. Each owner on the account is insured for up to $250,000. Beneficiaries may increase coverage limits.
