The NCUA announced today that it will make a $109.6 million distribution to more than 100 membership and paid in capital shareholders of the former Constitution and U.S. Central corporate credit unions.
The NCUA stated it will also distribute $68.6 million in dividends to more than 2,500 Members United and Southwest Corporate shareholders.
“This represents the sixth multi-million-dollar distribution as part of the successful Corporate System Resolution Program and is another example of the NCUA fulfilling its fiduciary responsibility to return additional funds to capital holders,” said Todd Harper, NCUA chairman. “As we wind down the remaining asset management estates, we will continue to minimize costs and maximize returns”
Harper also stated that recipients should use the funds to support the millions of credit union members experiencing economic hardships due to rising interest rates and inflationary pressures and to increase access to safe, fair, and affordable financial products and services, especially in under-resourced areas.
As liquidating agent of the former corporate credit unions’ asset management estates, the NCUA previously made five rounds of distributions. In 2020, 2021, and 2022, distributions were made to capital holders of Southwest, Members United, Constitution, and U.S. Central.
This latest distribution is scheduled to occur before the end of March 2023, and with this new distribution, the NCUA will have returned more than $2.7 billion to former membership and paid in capital shareholders and more than $360 million in dividends to shareholders.
