Helpful Information to Review Prior to Submitting a Request


The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a law that provides any person access to agency records, except to the extent that such agency records or portions of such agency records are protected from disclosure by one or more of the nine FOIA exemptions.  There are certain requirements for making an NCUA FOIA request, and in some cases, the records you are requesting may already be posted online.
