A $3 million-in-assets credit union in Staten Island, N.Y., on Friday became the seventh federally insured credit union liquidated in 2018, the National Credit Union Administration announced.
Radio, Television and Communication Federal Credit Union, with 416 members as of its last call report, was chartered in 1964 and served “various groups” in New York, the agency said.
