NAI member companies serve cookies via this website to allow consumers to opt-out of the Online Preference Marketing (“OPM”) practices of those member companies. To enable a consumer to opt out, the NAI or member company must set an “opt-out cookie” on the consumer’s browser. At this site, the setting of that opt-out cookie occurs when the consumer chooses, via one of our opt-out pages, not to participate in the OPM practices of an NAI member company. The only way that an NAI member company will be able to know that a consumer has chosen not to participate in OPM is if the member company can read an opt-out cookie on that consumer’s browser. To learn more about how our opt-out process works, click here.
No personally-identifiable information is collected on this website from consumers that browse the website for information or use the opt-out service.

National Credit Union Administration (NCUA)
An independent agency of the United States Government. NCUA regulates, charters, and insures the nation’s federal credit unions. In addition, NCUA insures state chartered credit unions, like Generations Federal Credit Union, which desire and qualify for federal insurance.
The shares in Generations Federal Credit Union are insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) or the Fund, an arm of NCUA. Established by Congress in 1970 to insure member share accounts at federally insured credit unions, the Fund is managed by NCUA under the direction of the three-person NCUA Board.
Your share insurance is similar to deposit insurance provided by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Share accounts in federally insured credit unions are insured up to $250,000, an amount equal to the insurance protection offered by the FDIC.

National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund
The National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) is the federal fund created by Congress in 1970 to insure member’s deposits in credit unions up to the $250,000 federal limit. Administered by the National Credit Union Administration, the NCUSIF is backed by the “full faith and credit” of the U.S. Government. Click here to learn more.
You can use the new Electronic Share Insurance Estimator at the NCUA web site in order to give you an idea as to the amount of coverage your accounts at the Credit Union carry. Based on the type of deposit account(s) you have, this estimator will determine how much those same accounts are insured for.
Equal Housing Lender
There are several federal laws which provide you with protection during the processing of your loan. The Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), the Fair Housing Act, and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) prohibit discrimination and provide you with the right to certain credit information.
No Discrimination. ECOA prohibits lenders from discrimination against credit applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age, the fact that all or part of the applicant’s income comes from any public assistance program, or the fact that the applicant has exercised any right under any federal consumer credit protection law. To help government agencies monitor ECOA compliance, your lender or mortgage broker must request certain information regarding your race, sex, marital status and age when taking your loan application.
The Fair Housing Act as amended, prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status (including children under the age of 18 living with parents of legal custodians, pregnant women, and people securing custody of children under the age of 18), and handicap (disability).
