$1,000,000 Minimum Deposit Coverage! Plus, no enrollment needed, all members automatically qualify for FREE

First, as a Valley Credit Union member, your deposits are federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) for a minimum of $250,000. The NCUA is an independent agency of the U.S. government, providing similar insurance protection as the FDIC does for bank customers.

For details about NCUA deposit insurance or how to structure your accounts to qualify for greater federal coverage, please refer to the chart below or contact Valley Credit Union.

Second, accounts exceeding the maximum level of coverage provided by NCUA, additional insurance of a minimum of $750,000 is available through ESi, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Share Insurance, a credit union-owned private deposit insurer founded in 1974 by credit unions, for credit unions.

The easiest way to increase your amount that is federally insured is to designate beneficiaries on any individual, joint, and trust account you have. Each beneficiary is insured for $250,000. Just remember, that any beneficiary you name will someday inherit your funds. 

Coverage extends to all types of deposit accounts, including personal accounts, business accounts, share certificates, and IRAs.
