Member Services Continue; Deposits Remain Protected by Share Insurance Fund
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (March 29, 2019) – Members of C B S Employees Federal Credit Union are now members of University Credit Union following today’s liquidation by the National Credit Union Administration.
The new University Credit Union members should experience no interruption in services. Members’ accounts remain insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. Administered by the 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. The Share Insurance Fund separately protects IRA and KEOGH retirement accounts up to $250,000. The Share insurance Fund has the backing of the full faith and credit of the United States.
The NCUA liquidated C B S Employees, located in Studio City, California, and discontinued its operations after determining the credit union was insolvent with no prospect of restoring viable operations on its own. University Credit Union, located in Los Angeles, immediately assumed C B S Employees’ assets, loans, and all member shares.
University Credit Union is a federally insured, state-chartered credit union that, prior to its assumption of C B S Employees, served 37,057 members and had assets of $654,577,105, according to the credit union’s most recent Call Report.
