Safe and Sound
NCUA insures accounts in credit unions through the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund.
- The Share Insurance Fund is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government.
- The Share Insurance Fund provides essentially the same coverage as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's (FDIC) account insurance.
- You can increase your coverage by setting up different types of accounts because the $250,000 coverage is per qualifying account.
