F.S. 657.041
657.041 Insurance; employee benefit plans.
(1) A credit union may purchase for or make available to its members credit life insurance, credit disability insurance, life savings or depositors life insurance, or any other insurance coverage which may be directly related to the extension of credit or to the receipt of shares or deposits in amounts related to the members’ respective ages, shares, deposits, or credit balances, or to any combination thereof.
(2) A credit union may purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee, or agent of the credit union, or who is or was serving at the request of the credit union as a director, officer, employee, or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust, or other enterprise, against any liability arising out of such person’s capacity or status with the credit union, whether or not the credit union would have the power to indemnify such person against the asserted liability.
(3) With the prior approval of members of a credit union and the office, the credit union may pay the premiums for reasonable health, accident, and related types of insurance protection for members of the credit union’s board of directors, credit committee, supervisory committee, or other volunteer committee established by the board. Any insurance protection purchased must cease upon the insured person’s leaving office without residual benefits other than from pending claims, if any, except that the credit union must comply with federal and state laws providing departing officials the right to maintain health insurance coverage at their own expense. The office shall consider the credit union’s size and financial condition and the duties of the board or other officials in its consideration of the request for approval for insurance coverage and may withhold approval if the request would create an unsafe or unsound practice or condition for the credit union.
(4) With the prior approval of the board of a credit union and the office, the credit union may fund employee benefit plans. The office shall consider the credit union’s size and financial condition and the duties of the employees and may withhold approval if the request would create an unsafe or unsound practice or condition for the credit union.
