THE INSTITUTION'S SCORE

Capital Score

Capital acts as a buffer against losses and as protection for members when a credit union is experiencing financial trouble. Therefore, a credit union's level of capital is a valuable measurement of its financial strength. When looking at safety and soundness, the more capital, the better.

CMC-FCPI EMPLOYEES scored below the national average of 15.65 on our test to measure capital adequacy, achieving a score of 6 out of a possible 30 points.

CMC-FCPI EMPLOYEES appears to be less well prepared for financial trouble than its peers in this area, with a capitalization ratio of 6.00 percent in our test, below the average for all credit unions.

Asset Quality Score

In this test, Bankrate tries to estimate the effect of problem assets, such as past-due loans, on the credit union's reserves set aside to cover loan losses, as well as overall capitalization.

Having lots of these kinds of assets may eventually force a credit union to use capital to cover losses, reducing its cushion of equity. It also means that there are likely to be many assets that are in non-accrual status and no longer earning interest for the credit union, resulting in lower earnings and potentially more risk of a future failure.

CMC-FCPI EMPLOYEES came in below the national average of 38.09 on Bankrate's asset quality test, racking up 36 out of a possible 40 points .

A lower-than-average ratio of troubled assets of 0.00 percent in our test was potentially indicative of greater financial strength than other credit unions.

Earnings score

How successful a credit union is at making money affects its safety and soundness. A credit union can retain its earnings, boosting its capital buffer, or use them to address problematic loans, likely making the credit union better able to withstand financial trouble. Conversely, losses take away from a credit union's ability to do those things.

CMC-FCPI EMPLOYEES underperformed the average on Bankrate's test of earnings, achieving a score of 0 out of a possible 30.

One sign that the credit union is running ahead of its peers in this area was its earnings ratio of 0.00 percent in our test, above the average for all credit unions.

WHAT IS SAFE & SOUND?

Bankrate.com's Safe & Sound Ratings provide a star rating system to evaluate the current financial status of financial institutions. The information gathered about banks, credit unions and thrifts is updated as set forth in the Terms of Use of Safe & Sound Ratings and Reports. The Safe & Sound Ratings information is grouped by categories of banks, thrifts and credit unions.

Scoring methodology

Bankrate.com evaluates the financial condition of institutions and assigns a one- to five-star rating for each with five stars representing the highest rating. Institutions with satisfactory performance will generally receive a rating of three or more stars. The majority of institutions fall into the three- to four-star range. An institution with an "NR" rating may be too new to rate or may have limited the publicly available information in their regulatory filings. The "NR" is not an indication of financial strength or weakness. The Safe & Sound rating is believed to be reliable, but the information is not guaranteed. In addition, events since the information was collected may have altered the institution's financial condition.
