And thanks to vigilant readers who pointed out this new twist: the U.S. placed two credit unions under conservatorship: U.S. Central Federal Credit Union (Lenexa, KS) with $34 billion in assets and Western Corporate Federal Credit Union (San Dimas, CA) with $23 billion in assets...
The two corporate credit unions were placed into conservatorship to protect retail credit union deposits and the interest of the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), as well as to remove any impediments to the Agency’s ability to take appropriate mitigating actions that may be necessary. Service continues uninterrupted at both U.S. Central Corporate Federal Credit Union and WesCorp, and members are free to make deposits and access funds.
The Federal Credit Union Act authorizes the NCUA Board to appoint itself conservator when necessary to conserve the assets of a federally insured credit union, preserve member assets and protect the NCUSIF.
$57 billion in assets? This is more than all FDIC-seized bank assets in 2009. Has the FDIC been merely attempting to distract from the real troubles at the National Credit Union Administration?Sphere: Related Content Print this post
