The agency had originally budgeted $54.2 million in funds to cover expected insurance loss expenses for the month of March but those projected losses did not materialize. NCUA CFO Mary Ann Woodson reported that the NCUSIF’s equity ratio stood at 1.29% as of March 31, and added that $140 million of the NCUSIF’s $1.2 billion in reserves are allocated for expected losses related to specific, troubled natural-person credit unions. A total of $1 billion of those NCUSIF reserves remain unallocated. Woodson in her report noted that the number of CAMEL Code 4 and 5 credit unions increased by 6 in March. The 366 total CAMEL 4 and 5 credit unions represent 5% of insured shares, or $37 billion. The number of CAMEL 3 credit unions declined by 5, dropping that total to 1798. CAMEL 3 credit unions represent 17% of insured shares, or $132 billion. To access this month's NCUA insurance report, use the resource link.
