You're in good hands

General Electric Credit Union is federally insured by the National Credit Union Association (NCUA). Because of this, the NCUA insures your funds with the Credit Union up to $250,000 per accountholder and per account type. Not sure if your accounts fall under this umbrella? Use the NCUA share insurance estimator to determine if you're covered – or if there's a gap that needs to be addressed. 

If any of your funds fall outside of NCUA insurance, contact a GECU team member to discuss strategies to expand your coverage.
