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 standard share insurance amount is $250,000 per share owner, per insured credit union, for each account ownership category. The $250,000 standard share insurance account became permanent through the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.
