At Bankrate we strive to help you make smarter financial decisions. While we adhere to strict , this post may contain references to products from our partners. Here’s an explanation for

National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) credit unions have only had two conservatorships/liquidations in 2020.

This is fewer than the number of Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) bank failures this year. But both types of financial institutions have seen a low number of failures compared with past years.

A credit union that resolves its operational problems can return to its status as member ownership, according to the NCUA. Conservatorships can merge with another NCUA credit union or it can be liquidated by the NCUA.

The below list consists of NCUA conservatorships and liquidations. They are conservatorships, mergers with NCUA assistance, voluntary liquidations and involuntary liquidations between 2012 and 2020.

The NCUA both operates and manages the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), which like the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC), is backed by the the full faith and credit of the U.S. government. The standard share insurance coverage amount is $250,000, according to the NCUA. This is per share owner, per NCUA credit union, for each ownership category.
