ESI’s excess share insurance has been protecting the hard-earned savings of credit union members throughout the United States since 1993. This unique program provides up to $250,000 of additional deposit insurance to members’ accounts that exceed the limits of coverage provided them by the credit union’s primary share insurance organization, usually $250,000, and is available to credit unions in 32 different states across the country.
Members of credit unions using ESI’s excess share insurance can take great comfort in knowing that their savings are safe, and that a portion of their deposits are protected by a well-capitalized credit union-only private insurer. Today, over 200 credit unions nationwide utilize ESI’s program to add another layer of protection to that afforded the credit union by its primary insurer.
In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, Excess Share Insurance Corporation (ESI) offices will be closed on both Thursday, November 26th and Friday, November 27th. Normal office hours will resume on Monday, November 30th.
