2 credit unions up, 1 down in latest ratings

Two area credit unions have been upgraded and one downgraded in BauerFinancial's latest ratings, based on regulatory data from March 31.

Danville Consolidated Credit Union, which had been rated 2-star ("problematic") in the previous quarter's ratings, was upgraded to 3-star ("adequate") in the latest ratings.

Also upgraded was Community Plus Federal Credit Union, with offices in Rantoul and Champaign. It earned a 5-star ("superior") rating, up from 4-star ("excellent") in the previous quarter.

Meanwhile, the Carle Employees Federal Credit Union in Urbana was downgraded from 5-star to 4-star.

The other 18 area credit unions rated by BauerFinancial retained their ratings from the quarter that ended Dec. 31.

Seven other area credit unions were not rated, either because they are too small or because they are insured privately, rather than by the National Credit Union Administration.

BauerFinancial bases its ratings on capital ratios, profitability trends, levels of delinquent loans, charge-offs and repossessed assets, liquidity, historical data and supervisory actions by regulatory agencies.

Here are BauerFinancial's ratings for area credit unions based on March 31 data:
