This list shows the U.S. credit unions that have either failed or have been placed into conservatorship in 2012 or 2013, and it is updated weekly.
Most of the credit unions are acquired, and, if insured, the National Credit Union Association will either transfer the member's account to another NCUA-insured credit union or give the insured member depositor a check equal to his or her insured account balance, up to the insurance limit of $250,000.
