Your Deposits Insured up to $500,000!
Your deposit accounts at North Star Community Credit Union are insured up to $500,000. This exceptional coverage is achieved through a combination of federal insurance, provided by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), and private insurance from Excess Share Insurance Corporation (ESI).
NCUA’s basic federal coverage insures credit union members’ deposits up to $250,000. Accounts may be structured in different ways — such as joint, payable-on-death or IRA accounts — to achieve federal coverage of more than $250,000.
Excess Share Insurance
Accounts exceeding the maximum coverage provided by NCUA are also insured up to an additional $250,000 by ESI. For example, if you have a regular savings account, checking account and share certificate that collectively add up to $500,000; $250,000 of those funds will be insured by the NCUA, and the remaining $250,000 will be insured by ESI.
Combined Insurance Coverage
All individual savings, checking and share certificates of deposit accounts held by the same member are added together and insured up to $250,000 by NCUA and an additional $250,000 by ESI, for a total of $500,000.
All IRA accounts held by the same member are added together and insured up to $250,000 by NCUA and an additional $250,000 by ESI, for a total of $500,000.
All joint accounts held by the same member are added together and insured up to $250,000 by NCUA and an additional $250,000 by ESI, for a total of $500,000.
