How are credit union savings deposits insured?

Savings held in a credit union savings account is insured up to $250,000, with additional coverage for retirement savings, by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund administered by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the U.S. federal government.

How did credit unions start?

The first credit union cooperatives started in Germany over a 120 years ago. Today, credit unions are found in over 80 countries. The credit union movement began in 1909 in Manchester, New Hampshire as St. Mary’s Cooperative Credit Association, a church-affiliated credit union. Today, there are over 100 million credit union members in the United States.

What is the purpose of a credit union?

The primary purpose of credit unions is provide a not-for-profit financial alternative to help provide access to low-cost or no-cost financial services. Generally, credit unions offer lower loan rates and higher savings yields while helping people to improve their lives by eliminating the need to use fringe providers such as title loan companies, buy-here, pay-here stores and others that charge extremely high interest rates and fees. Rather than paying profits to stockholders, credit unions return earnings to members in the form of dividends, low-cost loans and improved services.
