It also referenced the company's "more than adequate risk-adjusted capitalization as measured by Best's Capital Adequacy Ratio, consistently positive net-operating gains and its strategic initiatives to grow ancillary lines of business to improve product and revenue diversification outside its niche."

A.M. Best also cited CMFG Life's "supportive level of risk-adjusted capitalization, conservative balance sheet, overall-operating profitability and well-established niche position in the credit union and multi-peril crop insurance segments."

A.M. Best also upgraded a CMFG Life subsidiary, MEMBERS Life Insurance Company to "A" (Excellent) from B++ (Good) and affirmed its stable outlook.

The credit rating organization serves the financial services industry.
