The purpose of Mississippi Postal Employees Federal Credit Union is to promote thrift among its members by affording them an opportunity to accumulate their savings, and to create for them a source of credit for provident or productive purposes.
This Credit Union is federally insured by the National Credit Union Adminsitration.
Since 1984, credit unions have fully funded their federal deposit insurance program on a pay-as-you-go basis. Each year, credit unions deposit sufficient funds to ensure that the fund's equity ratio is maintained at or above 1.2%. While the NCUSIF is backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government, the structure of the insurance fund ensures that only if all of the capital in the credit union movement were to be exhausted would taxpayer funds be spent on credit unions. Like other deposit insurance funds, NCUSIF protects member deposits to $250,000.
Benefits of Membership
Founded on the basic democratic premise of the cooperative movement, credit unions believe that access to low-cost financial services is critical to the health and stability of ordinary citizens.

Regulation and Supervision
Credit Unions are chartered under either federal or state law. Federally chartered Credit Unions are regulated by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an independent agency of the U.S. Government. NCUA's three board members are nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate. State chartered Credit Unions are regulated by their state Credit Union department. NCUA administers the federal insurance fund (NCUSIF), which covers all federal Credit Unions and most state chartered Credit Unions. No taxpayer money is used for regulating and overseeing federal Credit Unions, as all activities of NCUA and the NCUSIF are funded by Credit Unions.
