NCUA Insurance Coverage

You trust SFPCU to safeguard your money, and we provide that protection through the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), a fund backed by the U.S. government and administered by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). The NCUA is the governing body for federal credit unions and insures savings in credit unions throughout the country.

The NCUSIF insures most accounts up to $250,000, but your accounts can be covered beyond that amount based on the legal vesting of your accounts.

Contact us today if you have any questions about NCUA Insurance Coverage and its impact on your accounts.

Which Accounts Qualify for Coverage?

Individual accounts, joint accounts, trust accounts and Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA) qualify for share insurance coverage. Account owners generally have an aggregated maximum coverage of $250,000 per credit union and per category of coverage.
