ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Nov. 16, 2018) – Six federally insured credit union liquidations in the first three quarters of 2018 resulted in a $744.9 million loss to the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund.
The six liquidated credit unions were: St. Elizabeth’s Credit Union, First Jersey Credit Union, Louisville Metro Police Officers Credit Union, Greater Christ Baptist Church Credit Union, Melrose Credit Union, and LOMTO Federal Credit Union.
The NCUA maintains a Conservatorships and Liquidations webpage with more information.
At the NCUA’s Nov. 15 open Board meeting, the Chief Financial Officer reported $744.9 million in losses to the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund due to the six credit union failures through Sept. 30. That figure is the loss calculated at the time each credit union was liquidated. The loss figure can change depending on the performance of the remaining assets of the credit unions.
The NCUA continues to evaluate all courses of action that will maximize potential recoveries from the assets of the liquidated credit unions and minimize losses to the Share Insurance Fund. The fund has sufficient equity and reserves to cover anticipated losses.
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 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. At MyCreditUnion.gov, NCUA also educates the public on consumer protection and financial literacy issues.
