(205 ILCS 305/58) (from Ch. 17, par. 4459)
    Sec. 58. Share insurance.
    (1) Each credit union operating in this State shall insure its share accounts with the NCUA, under 12 U.S.C. 1781 to 1790 or with such other insurers as may be jointly approved by the Secretary of Financial and Professional Regulation and the Director of Insurance. Each approved insurer shall be found to be financially sound and to employ approved actuarial practices. The Secretary shall determine that a firm commitment to insure share accounts has been issued before a charter may be granted for a new credit union.
    (2) A credit union which has been denied a commitment of insurance of accounts shall either dissolve, merge with another credit union, or apply in writing, within 30 days of denial, to the Secretary for additional time to obtain an insurance commitment. The Secretary may grant up to 24 months additional time upon satisfactory evidence that the credit union is making a substantial effort to achieve the conditions precedent to issuance of the commitment.
    (3) The Secretary shall cooperate with the NCUA or other approved insurers by furnishing copies of financial and examination reports and other information bearing on the financial condition of any credit union.
