Washington state chartered credit unions (“state credit union”) must comply with laws pertaining to federal deposit insurance. The National Credit Union Administration (the “NCUA”) is the U.S. government agency that insures shares and deposits to at least $250,000 for state credit unions. The NCUA may issue its own administrative orders to state credit unions. View NCUA’s administrative orders.
