Carlsbad, NM – March 2023: BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Credit Union and Bank Rating Firm, is proud to announce that U-1st Community F.C.U. has once again earned its top (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability. This marks the 63rd consecutive quarter that U-1st Community F.C.U. has earned Bauer’s recommended rating (5-Stars or 4-Stars).

Bauer rates every federally-insured credit union with the same strict standards, and is pleased to report that U-1st Community F.C.U. continues to come out on top. What’s more, credit unions, like U-1st Community F.C.U., understand that in order for them to thrive, their members must thrive, explains Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “That translates to loyalty and dedication to its membership, a commitment to work together toward a better tomorrow. At U-1st Community F.C.U., this commitment comes naturally, because its employees and members share much more in common than a financial institution.”

Established in 1955, U-1st Community F.C.U. has carried that dedication to its members for 68 years. Making connections and supporting members has been its hallmark since its inception. Being rated 5-Stars by Bauer, the best, most trusted and most convenient place to go for a validated, statistical review of your credit union’s financial strength, is the fruit of its labor. 

Bank and Credit Union data compiled from financial data for the period noted, as reported to federal regulators. The financial data obtained from these sources is consistently reliable, although; the accuracy and completeness of the data cannot be guaranteed by BauerFinancial, Inc. Since 1983, BauerFinancial has relied upon this data in its judgment and in rendering its opinion (e.g. determination of star ratings). BauerFinancial, Inc. is not a financial advisor; it is an independent bank research firm. No institution can pay for or opt out of a BauerFinancial rating.
