NCUA made the decision to close Vensure FCU and discontinue its operation after determining the credit union was insolvent and has no prospects for restoring viable operations. At the time of liquidation the credit union served 140 members and had deposits of approximately $8.1 million.
The credit union provided financial services to employees of Vensure Employer Services, its clients, and other corporate entities. Vensure FCU is the twelfth federally-insured credit union liquidation in 2011.
