With the recent string of bank failures out there, you may have been
wondering if your money here is protected.
Your accounts at Access, up to $250,000, are protected by the U.S.
Government. Your retirement accounts, also up to $250,000 are protected too. No
one has ever lost money on a Government insured credit union account. This guarantee is provided by the NCUA (National Credit Union Association), credit unions' Federal regulator, and backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government just like the FDIC program for banks. This $250,000 level of protection is in effect to December 31, 2013.
