The National Credit Union Administration is the independent federal agency that regulates, charters and supervises federal credit unions. With the backing of the full faith and credit of the United States, NCUA operates and manages the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, insuring the deposits of account holders in all federal credit unions and the overwhelming majority of state-chartered credit unions.
NCUA has a full time, three-member Board appointed by the President of the United States and confirmed by the Senate. No more than two Board members can be from the same political party, and each member serves a staggered six-year term. There currently is one vacancy.
NCUA relies upon more than 1,200 employees to perform all the vital tasks in the agency’s examination, consumer protection and regulatory roles. The agency operates a central office in Alexandria, Virginia; an Asset Management and Assistance Center, located in Austin, Texas, to liquidate credit unions and recover assets; and five regional offices.
