An agency of the United States federal government that was created to monitor federal credit unions across the country. One of its major responsibilities is running the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), which uses tax dollars to insure the deposits at all federal credit unions.

The NCUA officially became a federal agency in 1970 and is headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia. The agency is headed by a three-member board which is appointed directly by the president of the United States. The agency currently monitors over 9,500 federally insured credit unions that service over 80 million customer accounts.
