InfoSight Highlight – Use of NCUA Signage
Friday, March 31, 2017 6:45 AM

Requirements for use of the official sign for National Credit Union Association.

Each insured credit union must continuously display the official sign described below at each station or window where insured account funds or deposits are normally received in its principal place of business and in all its branches, beginning 30 days after its first day of operation as an insured credit union.

Each insured credit union must also display the official sign on its Internet page, if any, where it accepts deposits or open accounts, but it may vary the font sizes from that depicted in paragraph (b) of this section to ensure its legibility.

An insured credit union may purchase signs from commercial suppliers or develop its own in any color scheme, so long as they are legible and otherwise comply with Part 740 of the NCUA Rules and Regulations.

A credit union may alter the font size of the official sign to make it legible on its Internet page and on documents it provides to its members, including advertisements in other portions of the advertisement,* but it may not do so on signs to be placed at each station or window where the credit union normally receives insured funds or deposits in its principal place of business and all of its branches.

The terms ‘‘branch,’’ ‘‘station,’’ ‘‘teller station,’’ and ‘‘window’’ do not include automated teller machines or point of sale terminals.

An insured credit union that fails to comply with Section 205(a) of the Federal Credit Union Act regarding the official sign, or any requirement in NCUA’s Rules & Regulations, Section 740, is subject to a penalty of up to $100 per day.

* The official advertising statement must be in a size and print that is clearly legible, and it may be no smaller than the smallest font size used and intended to convey information to the consumer.
