NCUA announces that there will be no TCCUSF assessment in 2014

The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) will not charge a Temporary Corporate Credit Union Stabilization Fund (TCCUSF) assessment in 2014. The National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund assessment for 2014 will be between zero and five basis points (bp), the agency added.

The Credit Union National Association urged the NCUA to set the range for the TCCUSF assessment as narrow as possible, starting with zero bp.

Credit unions have paid $4.8 billion in TCCUSF assessments since the fund was established. The projected net remaining assessments over the life of the TCCUSF, based on estimates from the second quarter of 2013, now range from -$0.2 billion to $1.6 billion.

The NCUA also will receive $1.4 billion through a settlement with JP Morgan announced this week. The settlement funds "will greatly benefit credit unions" and "will enable NCUA to greatly reduce the assessments that all credit unions have to pay," NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz said.
