ALEXANDRIA, Va. (November 13, 2009) – The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) today closed Ensign Federal Credit Union of Henderson, Nevada, and authorized the purchase and assumption (P&A) of member share accounts by EDS Credit Union of Plano, Texas.
The EDS Credit Union P&A enables Ensign Federal Credit Union members to continue to receive uninterrupted credit union service.

This is the 13th federally insured credit union liquidation in 2009.
