Federal Deposit Insurance

Just as deposits in banks are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), deposits in credit unions are insured by the federal government through the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA).


  • All of your individually owned savings and checking accounts (e.g., savings, checking, Christmas club, certificates, and money markets) in Summit are cumulatively insured up to $250,000
  • A separate $250,000 in coverage is available for other cumulative checking and savings accounts when they contain the same joint owner(s)
  • Funds in Payable On Death (POD) accounts are insured for a separate $250,000 for each beneficiary
  • The cumulative funds in your IRA accounts at Summit are also separately insured up to $250,000

By combining different types of accounts and different owners, you can maximize your coverage to receive more than the base $250,000.
