Title 12: Banks and Banking
PART 702—CAPITAL ADEQUACY
Subpart A—Net Worth Classification


§702.102   Statutory net worth categories.

(a) Net worth categories. Except for credit unions defined as “new” under subpart B of this part, a federally insured credit union shall be classified (Table 1)—

(1) Well capitalized if it has a net worth ratio of seven percent (7%) or greater and also meets any applicable risk-based net worth requirement under §§702.103 through 702.108; or

(2) Adequately capitalized if it has a net worth ratio of six percent (6%) or more but less than seven percent (7%), and also meets any applicable risk-based net worth requirement under §§702.103 through 702.108 below; or

(3) Undercapitalized if it has a net worth ratio of four percent (4%) or more but less than six percent (6%), or fails to meet any applicable risk-based net worth requirement under §§702.103 through 702.108; or

(4) Significantly undercapitalized if it

(i) Has a net worth ratio of two percent (2%) or more but less than four percent (4%); or

(ii) Has a net worth ratio of four percent (4%) or more but less than five percent (5%), and either—

(A) Fails to submit an acceptable net worth restoration plan within the time prescribed in §702.206; or

(B) Materially fails to implement a net worth restoration plan approved by the NCUA Board; or

(5) Critically undercapitalized if it has a net worth ratio of less than two percent (2%).

(b) Reclassification based on supervisory criteria other than net worth. The NCUA Board may reclassify a “well capitalized” credit union as “adequately capitalized” and may require an “adequately capitalized” or “undercapitalized” credit union to comply with certain mandatory or discretionary supervisory actions as if it were in the next lower net worth category (each of such actions hereinafter referred to generally as “reclassification”) in the following circumstances:

(1) Unsafe or unsound condition. The NCUA Board has determined, after notice and opportunity for hearing pursuant to §747.2003 of this chapter, that the credit union is in an unsafe or unsound condition; or

(2) Unsafe or unsound practice. The NCUA Board has determined, after notice and opportunity for hearing pursuant to §747.2003 of this chapter, that the credit union has not corrected a material unsafe or unsound practice of which it was, or should have been, aware.

(c) Non-delegation. The NCUA Board may not delegate its authority to reclassify a credit union under paragraph (b) of this section.

(d) Consultation with State officials. The NCUA Board shall consult and seek to work cooperatively with the appropriate State official before reclassifying a federally insured State-chartered credit union under paragraph (b) of this section, and shall promptly notify the appropriate State official of its decision to reclassify.
