A Safe Place To Save in New Hampshire
Deposit insurance, regulation, and careful management
All credit unions in New Hampshire have their members' deposits insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF). The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) logo that appears on a credit union's door or on its marketing materials tells the consumer that his or her deposits of up to $100,000 are protected by the full faith and credit of the United States government (the protection is identical to that provided by FDIC to bank customers). Credit unions capitalize this fund and no taxpayer money has ever been used to support the NCUSIF. This fund is administered by the NCUA which also regulates federally chartered credit unions. Recent legislation has increased insurance coverage on certain retirement accounts such as IRAs and Keoughs up to $250,000.
What makes an institution secure isn't insurance, however. The combination of regulatory control, prudent management and careful investment together with a deep and abiding commitment to the member/owners make credit unions safe places to save and invest.
