I received an email that claimed to be from NCUA stating that my ATM card has been suspended. Is this a legitimate email?

No, this email is an attempt at phishing. Phishing is a fraudulent attempt, usually made through email, to steal your personal information. Phishing emails usually appear to come from a well-known organization and ask for your personal information ? such as credit card number, social security number, account number or password. Often times phishing attempts appear to come from sites, services and companies with which you may not even have an account.
Please forward the entire e-mail message to Phishing@ncua.gov

Additionally, you can file formal complaints concerning any suspected fraudulent e-mail with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) at www.ic3.gov. The IC3 is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National White Collar Crime Center, and the Bureau of Justice Assistance.
