The Helping Families Save Their Homes Act of 2009, signed into law on
May 20, 2009, increased the level of insurance coverage on all accounts
up to $250,000 through December 31, 2013.
The shares in Maine Education Credit Union are insured by the National
Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), which is backed by the full
faith and credit of the United States Government. Established by Congress
in 1970 to insure member share accounts at federally insured credit unions,
the NCUSIF is managed by NCUA under the direction of the three-person
NCUA Board. Your share insurance is similar to the deposit insurance
protection offered by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
