Excess Share Insurance
Your credit union joined 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.
This exceptional coverage is available only to those credit unions meeting ESI’s strict underwriting requirements and high standards of performance. Our approval for the program reaffirms our position as a leading financial institution in your community.
For more information about the protection on your accounts, please contact the credit union. You can also visit ESI on the Internet at www.excessshare.com.
All accounts are federally insured up to $250,000 by NCUA, an agency of the US Government.
