Protecting the privacy of consumer information is very important to the National Credit Union Administration. For this reason, the Share Insurance Estimator does not require any confidential or personally identifiable information, nor does it store information after you complete a specific user session. Moreover, users can enter an owner's name by using their real name (Joe Smith), their relationship in the family group (Husband), or numerically (Owner1). The names of beneficiaries (if applicable) can be similarly entered.

In addition, as an extra measure of safety, the system is programmed so no account group information for the session is transferred over the Internet.
