How We Protect Your Money
When it comes to financial services, security is the name of the game
When it comes to deposit insurance, Uncle Sam has got your back. The National Credit Union Administration is the federal agency that insures credit unions, much in the same way that the FDIC insures banks. They cap their coverage at $250,000 per depositor, per institution, for each account ownership category. The whole thing can get a bit confusing, but the idea is there is some wiggle room.
Your retirement is covered
IRAs are insured separately from your other regular accounts, with the same maximum of $250,000. This means that, between your IRA and regular checking, you can trust Vibrant with half a million of your hard-earned dollars – and maybe even more.
Using more accounts for more coverage
For example, families can leverage their multiple accounts to increase their coverage beyond the $250,000 limit. If it seems complicated, don’t worry. We can help you set up your accounts to ensure you are getting optimum coverage.
