ALEXANDRIA, Va. (July 10, 2014) – The National Credit Union Administration today liquidated IBEW Local 816 Federal Credit Union of Paducah, Kentucky.
Member deposits are federally insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. Administered by NCUA, the Share Insurance Fund insures individual accounts up to $250,000, and a member’s interest in all joint accounts combined is insured up to $250,000.
