The first $250,000 of coverage on savings and $250,000 on IRAs is provided by the National Credit Union Administration, an agency of the U.S. government.
Our supplemental $250,000 insurance coverage is provided by the Excess Share Insurance Corp., the leading private deposit insurer in the country. This supplemental insurance is only available to select credit unions that meet the insurer's strict underwriting requirements. Atlantic Federal pays all the premiums for this insurance.
