Savings Accounts

Financial freedom and peace of mind begins with personal savings. At AFL-CIO Employees Federal Credit Union, our purpose is to help you achieve your savings goals for the future.

Share Savings Insurance
The share insurance at AFL-CIO Employees Financial is similar to deposit insurance provided by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

Share accounts in federally insured credit unions are insured up to $250,000, an amount equal to the insurance protection offered by the FDIC. Generally, if a credit union member has more than one account in the same insured credit union, those accounts are added together and are insured up to $250,000 (including checking).

There are exceptions, however. If a member has a regular share account and an Individual Retirement Account in the same credit union, each account is insured up to $250,000.

The NCUA Insurance booklet gives a more detailed explanation of insurance coverage.
