(1) cash on hand;

(2) deposits and shares in federally or state insured banks, savings and loan associations, and credit unions;

(3) assets which are insured by, fully guaranteed as to principal and interest by, or due from the U.S. government, its agencies, the Federal National Mortgage Association, or the Government National Mortgage Association;

(4) loans to other credit unions;

(5) loans to students insured under the provisions of Title IV, Part B of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. § 1071), as amended on June 15, 1977, or similar state insurance programs;

(16) investments in the NCUA Central Liquidity Facility.

(c) Corporate Credit Union.

(1) "Risk assets" of a corporate credit union are defined in (b) of this section, except loans made to its member credit unions will not be considered risk assets.

(2) In addition to the regular reserve required by AS 06.45.180 , a corporate credit union must establish and maintain a corporate reserve which must be established immediately before the payment of each dividend, as follows:

(A) a transfer of two percent of gross income must be made to the corporate reserve until that reserve equals one and one-half percent of the corporate credit union's total assets;

(B) whenever the corporate reserve falls below one and one-half percent of total assets, it must be replenished by regular transfers of two percent of gross income or by contributions in such amounts as may be needed to maintain the corporate reserve at one and one-half percent of total assets, whichever is less;

(C) charges may be made against the corporate reserve to the same extent and in the same manner as those permitted to be made against the regular reserve.
