About Credit Unions

Is my money insured at Mountain Empire FCU?
Yes, a member’s funds are federally insured through the NCUA (National Credit Union Administration).  The NCUA share insurance fund (NCUSIF) is very similar to the FDIC for banks. Depending on how an account is titled, the account can be eligible for more than $250,000 coverage through the NCUA.  In addition, federal law provides for insurance coverage of up to $250,000 for IRA accounts.

What is a Credit Union?
A Credit Union is a cooperative, not-for-profit financial institution organized to promote healthy financial practices amongst its members. It is member-owned and controlled through a board of directors elected by the membership. The board serves on a volunteer basis and may hire a management team to run the Credit Union. The board also establishes and revises policy, sets dividend and loan rates, and directs certain operations. The result: members are provided with a safe, convenient place to save and borrow at reasonable rates at an institution which exists to benefit them, not to make a profit.
