ALEXANDRIA, Va. (June 26, 2017) – The National Credit Union Administration today placed  LOMTO Federal Credit Union in Woodside, New York, into conservatorship.

Member deposits at LOMTO Federal Credit Union remain federally insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. Administered by NCUA, the Share Insurance Fund insures individual accounts up to $250,000, and a member’s interest in all joint accounts combined is insured up to $250,000. The Share Insurance Fund separately protects IRA and KEOGH retirement accounts up to $250,000. The Share Insurance Fund has the backing of the full faith and credit of the United States.

Normal member services at the credit union’s offices at 5024 Queens Boulevard in Woodside and 180 Riverside Boulevard, New York, New York, will continue uninterrupted.
