Share insurance is fundamental to the credit union system, and it’s a complex topic. To help credit unions better understand share insurance, the National Credit Union Administration has scheduled a webinar for Thursday, April 13, to discuss how member accounts are covered.
Registration for this webinar is now open (opens new window) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) . The webinar is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. Eastern and run approximately 60 minutes. It will be close captioned, and there is no charge. Participants will be able to log in and view the webinar on their computers or mobile devices using the registration link. They should allow pop-ups from this website.
NCUA staff from the Office of Credit Union Resources and Expansion will discuss topics including:
- Types of accounts covered by share insurance;
- What happens to share insurance coverage when credit unions merge;
- What happens to insurance of accounts if a member passes away; and
- General information about trusts.
Participants can submit questions during the presentation or in advance by emailing WebinarQuestions@ncua.gov. The email’s subject line should read, “Share Insurance Webinar.” Questions may be answered during the webinar or posted in a set of frequently asked questions that will appear with the event archive on the NCUA’s Learning Management System following the live event. Creating an LMS account also opens the door to an array of information and education materials on topics important to credit unions and their members.
