Is anybody familiar with American Share Insurance? Or with a credit union that is not insured by NCUA? I can't really find any information on it. Is there any possibility that the credit union can cancel their insurance? Is it really a safe place to put my money? The 6% is really tempting if I could get comfortable with the insurance aspect?

American Share Insurance (ASI) is used instead of NCUA for deposit insurance at a few credit unions in the US. The biggest is Patelco CU in California. I have more discussion on Patelco and ASI here. Many credit unions use ASI to supplement NCUA insurance.

There is some more discussion of NCUA and ASI in this post.
