NCUA Chairman Rodney E. Hood issued the following message as we commemorate the Declaration of Independence of the United States this weekend.

"Throughout our history, the United States has endured many difficult moments. Today, we are in the midst of such moments because of the ongoing global pandemic and the senseless death of George Floyd.

During these difficult times, and especially as we celebrate the 4th of July, we must never forget that the principles of the Declaration of Independence – "that all… are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, among them ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’ – are there to unite us in a common-bond."

To that end, let me paraphrase Robert F. Kennedy, who in the aftermath of Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination in 1968 noted that what is needed in the United States is not division or hatred, violence, or lawlessness, but rather, love, wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice towards those who still suffer within our country.

I hope you and your families have a safe and happy Fourth of July holiday celebrating our nation and our freedoms."

But as member-owned and cooperative institutions, credit unions provide a safe place to save and borrow at reasonable rates. Here are some more benefits of credit unions to share with your friends: https://go.usa.gov/xwHTj.

“Protecting credit unions and the consumers who own them through effective supervision, regulation and insurance.”

Created by the U.S. Congress in 1970, the National Credit Union Administration is an independent federal agency that insures deposits at federally insured credit unions, protects the members who own credit unions, and charters and regulates federal credit unions.

A three-member Board of Directors oversees the NCUA’s operations by setting policy, approving budgets and adopting rules. Each Board Member is appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate. The president also designates the Chairman of the NCUA Board. No more than two Board members can be from the same political party, and each member serves a staggered six-year term.

The NCUA protects the safety and soundness of the credit union system by identifying, monitoring and reducing risks to the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. Backed by the full faith and credit of the United States, the Share Insurance Fund provides up to $250,000 of federal share insurance to millions of account holders in all federal credit unions and the overwhelming majority of state-chartered credit unions.
