about the financial rescue plan wending its way through the Congress. The CUNA leader was introduced as “somebody who actually has been on Capitol Hill all week long speaking with congressional leaders behind the scenes.” Mica was asked whether credit unions are getting “frantic calls” from people worried about the safety of their deposits. The CUNA leader reiterated assurances he has made repeatedly in national news media in recent weeks: He emphasized that credit unions are federally insured through the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) just like banks are insured through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. “A lot of people don’t know that,” Mica warned, and went on to detail how federal credit union insurance coverage matches that offered by the FDIC.
