Part 741 Compendium:
Quick Reference to
State Rules Under NCUA



Table of Contents


The following is a Compendium of Part 741 of the Code of Federal Regulations (“CFR”). Part741 governs Federally-Insured State-Chartered Credit Unions (“FISCUs”). Part 741 is divided into two subparts. Subpart A contains regulations that apply directly to FISCUs and are not codified elsewhere in the U.S. Code (“U.S.C.”) or CFR. While the regulations of Subpart A are not fully codified elsewhere, they regularly reference other provisions of the U.S.C. and CFR.

Subpart B incorporates by reference complete provisions of the U.S.C. and CFR and applies them to FISCUs. Some provisions of Part 741 refer to sections of the U.S.C. or CFR that discuss activities that may not be permitted under the law of the state in which the FISCU is chartered. Please note that Part 741 does not enlarge the scope of a FISCU’s authority beyond what is permitted under applicable state law.

How to use this Compendium:

This document is an integrated roadmap of Part 741. Each Section of Part 741 is listed in its entirety. Where the text of Part 741 includes a cross-reference to other provisions of the U.S.C. or CFR, such cross-reference is indicated in bold. Click the bold text and your web browser will automatically open the relevant provision at (for the U.S.C.) or (for the CFR).

Some provisions include a “Special Notes” section. These notes are not part of the text of Part 741. Rather, they are helpful links and guidance meant to make use the Compendium more efficient.


“FISCU” refers to entities regulated under Part 741. The original text of Part 741 refers to the regulated entities variously as “credit unions,” “credit unions insured pursuant to title II of the Act,” “state-chartered credit unions,” etc. Inconsistent identification makes it difficult to determine when a particular provision applies. Therefore, for ease of reference, the term “FISCU” is inserted throughout the text of Part 741 wherever applicable.

“The Act” refers to the Federal Credit Union Act (12 U.S.C. §§1751 - 1795k).

“NCUA” refers to the National Credit Union Administration.
