WASHINGTON (7/31/08)—The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and the leagues are working on behalf of credit unions to reassure their members about the safety of their deposits in the credit unions system and about the soundness of that system despite today’s upheavals. CUNA this week distributed to each member credit union a special edition of Credit Union NewsWatch that encapsulates the many CUNA resources newly designed to help credit unions and their staffs address the public’s questions and concerns about the safety of their money in trying economic times. The issue features a two-page “Primer on Share Insurance Coverage For Individual Credit Union Members,” as well as a two-page spread on operational questions affecting share insurance coverage, geared toward credit union compliance staff. Also included in the special edition are:
* CUNA, Leagues Help CUs Spread Good News of Safety, Soundness * NCUSIF Strong at Mid-Year, Says NCUA * CUNA, Leagues Get Word Out About CU Soundness
