Excess Share Insurance

Your credit union belongs to an elite group of financial institutions that provide insurance coverage beyond the typical $250,000 for share savings accounts. Through our affiliation with the Excess Share Insurance Corporation (ESI), a licensed property and casualty insurer, we are now able to provide an additional $250,000 of coverage, for a total of $500,000 in protection for your regular savings accounts. Joint, retirement and certain other account relationships are insured separately and are subject to other federal guidelines, and also qualify for this supplemental coverage.

For more information about the protection on your accounts, please contact the credit union. You can also visit ESI on the Internet at

All accounts are federally insured up to $250,000 by NCUA, an agency of the US Government.

How would you like to invest tax-sheltered money for your retirement years, while reducing your current income tax? An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) can be one of the best retirement savings vehicles available to you - even if you are already contributing to a retirement program through your employer (please consult a tax advisor).

NW Priority CU offers a daily IRA Account and IRA Term Share/CD Accounts. The daily IRA account dividends are compounded and credited monthly and the rate is set monthly. The rate on your Term Share/CD account is fixed and is determined at the time you invest.
