Is Your Member Fully Insured by the NCUSIF? Best Practices & Common Mistakes

Date: August 8, 2013

Time: 3:00pm - 4:30pm

Location: Webinar


Share insurance coverage is important to your members. It seems to matter most to financially-savvy members with large deposit accounts. However, regardless of a member’s assets, credit union staff must be able to knowledgably answer questions about whether a member’s accounts are fully insured. Being able to confidently answer questions fortifies the trust members have in your credit union. Insurance on individual accounts, joint accounts, payable-on-death accounts, trusts, UTMAs, and business accounts will be covered.
