The NCUA is the National Credit Union Administration, the federal agency that charters and oversees credit unions. The NCUA also insures member accounts through the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), established by Congress in 1970. The NCUA and the NCUSIF guarantees your deposited funds are safe, secure, and protected.
Your Money is Safe, Secure, and Protected
Your Checking, Savings, and Certificate Accounts are federally insured by the NCUA to at least $250,000. In addition, certain retirement accounts, such as IRAs, are insured separately up to $250,000. Not one penny of insured funds has ever been lost by Members 1st Credit Union or a member of any federally insured credit union.
Your NCUA Insured Funds
Insurance provided by the NCUSIF is similar to the insurance provided by banks through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Your Savings, Checking, and Certificate accounts are insured up to $250,000 — just like FDIC coverage. And like FDIC coverage, NCUSIF insurance is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government.
