Your Insured Funds
The NCUA, National Credit Union Administration, is an independent agency of the United States Government. NCUA regulates, charters and insures the nation’s federal credit unions. The shares in this Credit Union are insured by the NCUA Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), an arm of the NCUA. Established by Congress in 1970 to insure member share accounts at federally insured credit unions up to $250,000.00. Not one penny of insured savings has ever been lost by a member of a federally insured credit union. The NCUSIF Fund is currently at the strongest and best reserved level in its history.
Funds Availability Policy
Our general policy is to allow you to withdraw funds deposited in your account on the first business day after the day we receive your deposit. In some cases, we may delay your ability to withdraw funds beyond the first business day. Then, the remaining funds will generally be available by the second business day after the day of deposit. The first $200.00 of your deposits, however, will be available on the first business day. Funds deposited after 4:00 p.m. will be considered deposited the next business day and will become available the following business day.
