Affinity Plus is federally insured by the NCUA, and your deposits with us are insured to at least $250,000.
Like at a traditional bank, your deposits with Affinity Plus federal Credit Union accounts are federally insured up to $250,000 per member-owner. The main difference is just who insures them. At Affinity Plus, they are covered by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) and this coverage is called share insurance.
If you have accounts at other credit unions outside of Affinity Plus, you have coverage up to the full insurable amount in each of the credit unions.
All types of share accounts and deposits received by Affinity Plus are insured, including the following:
Mutual funds, stocks, bonds and life insurance policies ARE NOT covered by the NCUA.
The type of account ownership matters, too. And you could actually qualify for more than $250,000 if you have share accounts in different categories of ownership.
The National Credit Union Administration is an independent agency of the U.S. Government that regulates, charters and insures the nation’s federal credit unions. It’s similar to how the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) insures and regulates traditional banks.
