ALEXANDRIA, Va. (5/21/12)--The Wisconsin Office of Credit Unions liquidated Wausau Postal Employees CU of Wausau, Friday and appointed the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) as liquidating agent.

The new CoVantage Credit Union members will experience no interruption in services and their accounts remain federally insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund up to $250,000.

CoVantage, afull-service, federally insured, state-chartered credit union, has $1 billion in assets and more than 74,000 members.
