NYC OTB Federal Credit Union Closes

Member Accounts Remain Safe and Federally Insured

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (February 23, 2011) -- The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) today placed NYC OTB Federal Credit Union, located in New York, New York, into liquidation.

NCUA made the decision to close NYC OTB Federal Credit Union and discontinue its operation after determining the credit union is insolvent and has no prospects for restoring viable operations. NYC OTB’s sponsor closing and the credit union’s subsequent declining financial condition led to the closure. At the time of the liquidation, the $1,456,884 credit union, chartered in 1972, served 868 members of the New York City Off-Track Betting Corporation in New York City. This is the third federally insured credit union liquidation in 2011.

NCUA’s Asset Management and Assistance Center will issue checks to individuals holding verified share accounts in NYC OTB Federal Credit Union within one week.

Member accounts are insured up to $250,000, with coverage provided by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, a federal fund backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government. Members with questions about their insurance coverage can contact NCUA’s Share Insurance Call center at 1-800-755-1030, Press 1, Monday through Friday during normal business hours.



NCUA is the independent federal agency created by the U.S. Congress to regulate, charter and supervise federal credit unions. With the backing of the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government, NCUA operates and manages the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, insuring the deposits of more than 96 million account holders in all federal credit unions and the overwhelming majority of state-chartered credit unions. At MyCreditUnion.gov and Pocket Cents, NCUA also educates the public on consumer protection and financial literacy issues..
