5-Star Rated by BauerFinancial, Inc.
For 30 years, Utilities Employees Credit Union has consistently received the 5-Star “Superior” Rating from BauerFinancial, Inc., an independent firm that analyzes banks and credit unions. To achieve this status, every quarter in which it has been ranked, Utilities Employees Credit Union has been assessed as having the highest ranking level in capital adequacy, asset quality and stability.
BauerFinancial, Inc. recommends those credit unions rated either 5-Star or 4-Star on a zero-to-five-star scale. These credit unions are deemed safe, financially sound credit unions that are operating well above their regulatory requirements. Bauer classifies each ranked U.S. credit union through a complex formula based on factors including capital, historical performance trends, loan delinquencies and charge-offs, investment portfolio quality, capital reserves, regulatory compliance, and total asset quality. The BauerFinancial, Inc. Star Ratings Scale uses five levels for credit union ranking: Superior (5 Stars), Excellent, Adequate, Problematic, and Troubled (1 Star).

Utilities Employees Credit Union holds a Superior Rating from IDC Financial Publishing, Inc., an independent firm that provides key performance measurement data for government-reporting financial institutions across the country. IDC Financial Publishing, Inc. calculates a one-number quality rank for each institution along with over 35 key financial ratios. There are six categories: Superior (200-300), Excellent (165-199), Average (125-164), Below Average (75-124), and Lowest Ratios (2-74) and Rank One. The analysis is based on the financial information each institution reports to the Federal Government.
Credit unions rated Superior are classified as the best in all measures. On average, they have the strongest capital ratios, the best asset quality, and are the most profitable.
