The shares in our credit union are insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), an arm of NCUA. Established by Congress in 1970 to insure member share accounts at federally insured credit unions, the NCUSIF is managed by NCUA. Share insurance is similar to the deposit insurance protection offered by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
Not one penny of insured savings has ever been lost by a member of a federally insured credit union. The federal insurance fund has several programs to help insured credit unions which may be experiencing problems. Liquidations or failures are a last resort. If a federally insured credit union does fail, however, the NCUSIF will make any necessary payouts to the credit unions members. These payouts are usually done within 3 days from the time the credit union closes its doors.
Our members do not pay directly for share insurance protection. The credit union pays into the NCUSIF a deposit and an insurance assessment, based on the total amount of the credit unions insured shares and deposits. As an insured credit union, we are required to deposit and maintain one percent of our insured shares and deposits in the NCUSIF. The NCUSIF is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government.
Most share accounts at our credit union are insured up to $100,000. Certain retirement accounts, such as IRAs, are insured up to $250,000. Generally, if a member has more than one account, those accounts are added together and insured in the aggregate. There are exceptions, though.
Members may obtain additional separate coverage on multiple accounts, if they have different ownership interests in these accounts.

The Irrevocable Trust must be valid under state law. The interest of each beneficiary in an account (or accounts) under an irrevocable trust arrangement is insured up to $100,000. Irrevocable trust accounts are insured separately from other accounts held by the settlor, trustee or beneficiary.
The credit unions records must indicate the names of the settlor and trustee and include a signature card executed by the trustee. The interest of the beneficiaries must be ascertainable from the records of either the credit union or the trustee.
Either the settlor or beneficiary must be a member of the credit union. If there are two or more settlors or beneficiaries then either all the settlors or all the beneficiaries must be members of the credit union. Coverdell Education Savings accounts are insured as an irrevocable trust account.

The account must evidence an intention that funds will pass directly on the death of the owner to a named beneficiary. To qualify for separate insurance under a Payable on Death account, the named beneficiary must be a spouse, child, grandchild, parent, brother or sister of the account owner.
The relationship between the owner and the beneficiary can be established through blood, adoption or re-marriage (for example, step-parents). Beneficiaries must be listed on credit union records. Payable on Death accounts can be established with a formal revocable trust, but dont need to be.
For Payable on Death accounts, share insurance coverage is $100,000 per owner for each qualifying beneficiary. Beneficiary interest in Payable on Death accounts is assumed to be equal unless otherwise stated on credit union records. Share insurance for Payable on Death accounts is separate from insurance on other individual, joint or retirement accounts of the member.
