Credit union deposits are safe, secure and insured

As not-for-profit financial cooperatives, credit unions' first priority is the people they serve. Recent bank failures have no connection to credit unions, but do emphasize the credit union difference: 

  • Credit union deposits are insured, safe and secure.
  • Deposits are insured up to $250,000 per individual depositor – the same level as any federally insured financial institution.
  • Credit union members have never lost a penny of insured savings at an insured credit union.
  • Learn more about the credit union difference at 
  • Visit for more information about the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund coverage for consumers.



Credit unions were born in a time of financial crisis, and we are a safe harbor during life’s storms. The credit union difference means that credit unions act with the best interests of member-owners at heart, and credit unions will continue to meet member needs.
