Credit unions

Got this nice note this morning. It's an important reminder.

For Chris: I'm a regular listener and appreciate your work. Just a reminder that when folks are looking for safe deposits, equivalent to a bank with FDIC insurance would be a credit union with NCUA (National Credit Union Administration) insurance. It has the same full faith and credit backing of the federal government, $100,000 limit per account and multiple account structure as FDIC. Virtually all credit unions have this federal coverage. Depositors can look for the blue NCUA logo in the lobby or on a website. Thanks. Bill Hampel, Chief Economist, Credit Union National Association
