Share Insurance Estimator Open Panel

The Share Insurance Estimator helps credit union members calculate their coverage under National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. You can use the estimator to determine how to structure your accounts to include joint accounts, payable on death (POD) accounts, and others to receive coverage greater than the $250,000 that is NCUA’s standard maximum share insurance amount.
