Federally Backed Security

Enjoy added peace of mind knowing that your deposits with Sandia Area are federally insured through the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), a U.S. government agency. The NCUA is backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government. Not one penny of insured savings has ever been lost by a member of a federally insured credit union. Each account holder's funds are insured to at least $250,000, and retirement accounts such as Individual Retirement Accounts are separately insured up to $250,000.

Maximize your share insurance coverage by establishing different types of insurance accounts. Because the NCUA insures accounts in different ownership categories separately, if your savings exceed the amount covered by the basic insurance limits you can extend your NCUA share insurance coverage by establishing different types of accounts.  You can also get up to $250,000 of additional insurance for your interest in joint accounts and for trust accounts of which you are a beneficiary. You'll find two examples below.
