NOTICE OF CHANGES IN TEMPORARY NCUA INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR TRANSACTION ACCOUNTS
Effective January 1, 2013, the National Credit Union Administration’s (NCUA’s) unlimited insurance coverage for “non-interest bearing transaction accounts” expired. This unlimited coverage is in addition to, and separate from, the coverage of at least $250,000 available to Members under the NCUA’s general share insurance rules.
The term “noninterest-bearing transaction account” includes a traditional share draft account (or demand deposit account) on which the insured credit union pays no interest or dividend. It does not include any transaction account that may earn interest or dividends, a negotiable order of withdrawal (“NOW”) account, money-market deposit account, and interest on Lawyers Trust Account (“IOLTA”), even if share drafts may be drawn on the account.
