Excess Share Insurance

Each member's account is federally insured to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) - the soundest financial insurance fund in the United States.
We also provide an additional $250,000 of Excess Share Insurance (ESI), bringing your
total protection up to $500,000 for your accounts. SharePoint Credit Union meets strict underwriting requirements to provide this additional $250,000.

For more information about ESI, you may find my blog post, ESI – Little Known Deposit Insurance for Credit Unions, helpful.

Scheduling an appointment can be done by calling 952.930.0700 or by sending an email to [email protected]

A Share Savings Account requires a minimum $5 balance; it gives you equal
ownership in SharePoint Credit Union, a not-for-profit, financial cooperative.

While SharePoint does not participate in a shared branching network, it does participate in MoneyPass, one of the largest surcharge-fee ATM networks, with access to more than 25,000 ATMs nationwide.

Credit Union Overview

SharePoint Credit Union has an overall health grade of "A+" at DepositAccounts.com, with a Texas Ratio of 1.96% (excellent) based on December 31, 2020 data. In the past year, SharePoint CU has increased its total non-brokered deposits by $35.78 million, an excellent annual growth rate of 17.49%. Please refer to our financial overview of SharePoint Credit Union (NCUA Charter # 63089) for more details.

Established in 1933, SharePoint Credit Union was originally known as the Red Owl Employees Credit Union. (Red Owl was an upper-Midwest grocery store chain.) A group of forwarding-thinking Red Owl employees “pooled their money because they knew that the value of their funds would be greater if joined together.” The Credit Union applied the “greater if joined together” principle to its FOM, which eventually expanded to include eight Minnesota counties. As the FOM changed, the Credit Union needed a new name and the SharePoint re-brand occurred in 2009. The 2018 merger with West Financial Credit Union added more than 3,400 individuals to the membership. SharePoint Credit Union is currently Minnesota's 17th largest credit union, with more than 22,000 members and assets in excess of $274 million.

How the eSavings Compares

When compared to Savings account tracked by DepositAccounts.com that are available within the FOM, SharePoint Credit Union’s eSavings APY currently (and clearly) ranks first. Coincidentally, the top three savings accounts in the comparison all have low balance caps.

You can also think of the eSavings account as an add-on 2-year CD with unlimited penalty-free withdrawals.

The above information and rates are accurate as of 3/10/2021.
