You should know that JSC Federal Credit Union is insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, which is backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government. As the FDIC does for banks, the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) insures a person's savings at a credit union.The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was signed on July 22, 2010. This included permanently establishing NCUA's standard maximum share insurance amount at $250,000. This same fund also insures that a person's savings in certain Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are insured up to $250,000 and this insurance protection is separate and apart from insurance coverage on other credit union accounts. The NCUSIF is administered by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the federal government. Not one penny of insured savings has ever been lost by a member of a federally insured credit union.
NOTICE OF CHANGES IN PERMANENT COVERAGE FOR TRANSACTION ACCOUNTS
All funds in a "non-interest bearing transaction account" are insured in full by the National Credit Union Administration. This coverage is in addition to, and separate from, the coverage of at least $250,000 available to members under the NCUA's general share insurance rules.
The term "non-interest bearing transaction account" includes a traditional share draft account on which the insured credit union pays no interest or dividend. It does not include any transaction account that may earn interest or dividends or a money-market deposit account even if share drafts may be drawn on the account. For more information about NCUA insurance coverage of transaction accounts, visit www.ncua.gov.
