The NCUA’s mission is to ensure the nation’s system of cooperative credit remains safe and sound. To achieve this, the agency’s examination program focuses on risks to the broader system and the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. Through the NCUA’s rule making process, it is creating a modern regulatory framework that allows for innovation and flexibility, while still maintaining a safe and sound credit unions system.
Letters to Credit Unions
From time to time, the NCUA will provide guidance and other information to the credit union system on a host of regulatory and supervisor matters, trends affecting federally insured credit unions, and potential risks and threats. Users can search Letters to Credit Unions and other supervisory guidance by year issued, subject, title and keywords.
The Federal Credit Union Act authorizes the NCUA Board to oversee America's credit union system and administer and manage the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. The NCUA also has statutory responsibility for supervising compliance with and enforcing laws and regulations that protect all credit union members.
In an effort to help credit unions, lawyers, and others that have an interest in the laws and regulations that apply to federally insured credit unions, the NCUA publishes certain of staff's legal opinions and interpretive letters issued since 1991. Users can search these by year, subject, title and keywords.
