The short answer is YES. Here are few important things to know about how Maine credit unions are protected:
- Federally insured credit unions offer a safe place for credit union members to save money. These deposits are protected by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund and insured up to at least $250,000 per individual depositor – the same as any other federally insured financial institution.
- Credit union deposits in federally insured credit unions are safe and secure, and all Maine credit unions are federally insured.
- Credit union members have never lost a penny of insured savings at a federally insured credit union.
- All Maine credit unions are regularly examined by financial regulators to ensure proper management and maintain the safety and soundness of members’ money within the institution.
