WASHINGTON (8/15/08)--The message is clear and simple: Credit unions remain healthy, vibrant, and well-capitalized. And that means your credit union accounts are insured, safe and secure, according to National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Vice Chair Rodney Hood, speaking on Sunday’s H&FF Radio show. Home & Family Finance airs Sundays at 3 p.m. EDT on the Radio America Network.
