Safety and Security
The Lifetime Federal Credit Union is chartered and supervised by the National Credit Union Administration, commonly referred to as NCUA.
NCUA, a federal government agency, also operates and manages the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF). Backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government, NCUSIF insures the accounts of millions of account holders in all federal credit unions and the vast majority of state chartered credit unions.
The NCUSIF provides all members of federally insured credit unions with $250,000 in coverage for their individual accounts. These accounts include regular shares, share drafts (similar to checking), money market accounts, and share certificates. Individuals with account balances totaling $250,000 or less at the same insured credit union have full NCUSIF coverage. If a person has more than $250,000 at any single credit union, several options are available for additional coverage. While NCUSIF coverage protects members at federally insured credit unions from losses on a broad spectrum of savings account and share draft products, it does not cover losses on money invested in mutual funds, stocks, bonds, life insurance policies, and annuities.
