Your accounts are protected
With today’s uncertainty, TCU wants you to know we have you covered. Our deposit accounts are insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), which operates and manages the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF). Backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, the NCUSIF insures the accounts of millions of account holders.
Share insurance coverage offered through the NCUSIF protects members against losses if a federally-insured credit union should fail. That means you can confidently join and conduct business with federally-insured credit unions, because no member has ever lost a penny from accounts insured by the NCUSIF.
If a person has more than $250,000 at any single credit union, several options are available for additional share insurance coverage. As indicated below, the NCUSIF provides separate insurance for various types of accounts. For more information about insurance coverage, please see How Your Accounts Are Federally Insured from the NCUA.
Example: If a member has a single account, they have $250,000 of coverage for funds in that account; if they also have a joint account with their spouse, each of them has $250,000 of coverage for funds in that account. Therefore, the member would have a total of $500,000 of coverage for funds in both accounts ($250,000 for the single account and $250,000 for the joint account), and their spouse would have $250,000 of coverage for funds in the joint account.
