Will there be enough cash during a pandemic or other national disaster?

Yes. The Federal Reserve System has and will continue to meet the currency needs of credit union members. Be assured that sufficient resources are available to handle member needs. Keep in mind, the safest place for your money is inside a financial institution. Credit unions will continue to ensure their members have access to funds either directly or electronically, and while on deposit in an NCUA-insured credit union, your funds are protected by the NCUA. Amidst COVID-19 concerns, please remember many payees and financial institutions will prefer or require electronic means of payment and adherence to social distancing, as payment in cash results in elevated risk of exposure. Please contact your institution for questions about electronic options for accessing your funds.
