Member Accounts are Safe and Federally Insured
September 30, 2009, Alexandria, VA – The National Credit Union Administration
(NCUA) today liquidated The Members' Own Federal Credit
Union of Victorville, California, and accepted Alaska USA Federal Credit
Union's offer to purchase and assume the credit union.
Alaska USA Federal Credit
Union purchased and assumed The Members' Own Federal Credit Union's
assets, loans and shares, enabling The Members' Own members to continue to
receive uninterrupted credit union service. The Members' Own Federal Credit
Union's declining financial condition led to its closure and subsequent
purchase and assumption by Alaska USA Federal Credit Union.
The Members' Own
Federal Credit Union had $85 million in assets and served 11,000 members.
Alaska USA Federal Credit Union is a full service credit union and its new
members will have access to a broad array of financial services offered
throughout the United States. With assets of $4.1 billion, Alaska USA FCU
serves approximately 375,000 members located throughout the country. Alaska
USA has 56 branch locations in Alaska, California, and Washington and also
serves its members through over 5,600 shared service locations nationwide.
Member accounts are insured to at least $250,000 by the National Credit Union
Share Insurance Fund, a federal insurance fund backed by the full faith and
credit of the U.S. Government. This is the 10th federally insured credit union
liquidation in 2009.
