The National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) is the federal fund created by Congress in 1970 to insure member’s deposits in credit unions up to the $250,000 federal limit. Administered by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), the NCUSIF is backed by the “full faith and credit” of the U.S. Government.
How the Fund is financed
The NCUSIF maintains at or near 1.30% of federally insured credit union deposits. By law, federally insured credit unions maintain 1% of their deposits in the NCUSIF and the NCUA Board can levy a premium if necessary. Credit unions voluntarily capitalized the Fund in 1985 by depositing 1% of their deposits into the Fund. Since then, the NCUA Board has charged only one premium, when three large New England credit unions failed in 1992 substantially increasing insurance losses. No federal tax dollars have ever been placed in the credit union financial Fund, and no member has ever lost money insured by the NCUSIF.
