THE INSTITUTION'S SCORE
Capital acts as a cushion against losses and provides protection for members during times of economic instability for the credit union. Therefore, an institution's level of capital is a crucial measurement of its financial strength. From a safety and soundness perspective, the more capital, the better.
On our test to measure capital adequacy, NASA received a score of 12 out of a possible 30 points, failing to reach the national average of 15.65.
NASA appears to be weaker than its peers in this area, with a capitalization ratio of 12.00 percent in our test, lower than the average for all credit unions.
