Resources For Today’s Banking Questions
The mission of the Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance (NDBF) is to “protect and maintain the public confidence through the fair, efficient, and experienced supervision of the state-regulated financial services industries.” NDBF is actively working to stay informed of national events and their impact on Nebraska.
Nebraska banks and credit unions are well capitalized and have strong reserves. Bank depositors are protected by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insurance fund. This FDIC fund is supported by all banks. Credit union share accounts are protected by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) administered by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). These funds exist precisely for situations such as this.
NDBF has put together a list of links to help answer consumer questions. Please follow these helpful links to get more information on how you can stay informed and protected.
