To be eligible for excess coverage, the credit union must comply with ASI’s rigid underwriting standards. Also, ASI’s insurance policy requires that every quarter the credit union submit financial statements and a listing of accounts eligible for excess coverage in order to continue coverage. Individual policies are not provided to members, and there is no direct cost to you for this coverage. It is important to note that excess deposit insurance is payable only upon the failure and liquidation of the credit union. The credit union or ASI may terminate or modify this coverage, but in either case, you would be notified in writing of any change in the excess coverage.


Headquartered in Dublin, Ohio, ASI is a credit union-owned private deposit insurer founded in 1974 by credit unions, for credit unions. ASI is licensed and dual-regulated by the Ohio Department of Commerce and the Ohio Department of Insurance and is authorized to issue this coverage in our state. Regulators of credit unions in each state in which American Share operates also review the company’s performance. Furthermore, the company’s financial statements are audited annually by an independent CPA firm and are available upon request through the credit union. ASI is not a federal or state government agency.
