Learn More about How Program Could Lower 2011 Assessments
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (July 1, 2011) – The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) will host a free webinar on the recently adopted Voluntary Prepayment of Corporate Stabilization Fund Assessments program July 11 at 2 p.m. EDT. The program has the potential to decrease the currently projected 2011 Stabilization Fund assessment by 6.4 basis points, from 24.9 to 18.5 basis points of March 31 insured shares.
At the May 19 open Board meeting, NCUA made available for public feedback a Voluntary Prepayment of Corporate Stabilization Fund Assessments proposal. The Board adopted a revised version of the plan June 29. The Voluntary Prepayment of Corporate Stabilization Fund Assessments program will permit voluntary prepayments of $500 million in Corporate Stabilization Fund assessments. The plan responds to credit union stakeholder requests to explore a program, similar to a program FDIC adopted in 2009, which would allow prepaid assessments for the Temporary Corporate Credit Union Stabilization Fund.
