WHAT IS THE NCUA?
The National Credit Union Administration, commonly referred to as NCUA, is an independent agency of the United States government that regulates, charters, and supervises federal credit unions. NCUA also 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 in all federal credit unions and the vast majority of state-chartered credit unions.
HOW DO I KNOW BANGOR FEDERAL CREDIT UNION IS FEDERALLY INSURED?
We are required by the NCUA to indicate our insured status in all advertising and also display the official NCUSIF insurance sign in our offices, drive-thru, and branches.
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.
