To be eligible for excess coverage, FRFCU must comply with ESI’s rigid underwriting standards. Also, ESI’s insurance policy requires that every quarter the credit union submit financial statements and a listing of accounts eligible for excess coverage in order to continue coverage. Individual policies are not provided to members, and there is no direct cost to you for this coverage. The credit union or ESI may terminate or modify this coverage, but in either case, you would be notified in writing of any change in the excess coverage.
Headquartered in Dublin, Ohio, ESI is a wholly owned subsidiary of American Share Insurance, a credit union-owned private deposit insurer founded in 1974 by credit unions, for credit unions. As a property and casualty insurer, ESI is subject to licensing and regulation by your state’s insurance department. Furthermore, the company’s financial statements are audited annually by an independent CPA firm and are available upon request through FRFCU. ESI is not a federal or state government agency.
