5-Star Empower Federal Credit Union Proves it Has What it Takes

Syracuse, NY - January 2023: BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Credit Union and Bank Rating Firm, has once again awarded Empower Federal Credit Union its top (5-Star) rating. “It’s important to impress, this award is not granted; it is earned”, emphasizes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “And, having earned 5-Stars for 40 (or more) consecutive quarters, Empower Federal Credit Union has earned an even higher designation as an ‘Exceptional Performance Credit Union’”.

Bauer rates every federally-insured credit union with the same strict standards, and is pleased to report that Empower Federal Credit Union continues to excel among its peers in areas of capital adequacy, loan quality and more. This marks the 41st consecutive quarter it has done so - since December 2012! Now that’s worth celebrating. Empower Federal Credit Union has certainly proven it has what it takes to carry it through 2023, whatever it may bring. 

“With the Federal Reserve raising interest rates at breakneck speed, it may be tough for some institutions to keep pace”, cautions Dorway. “But, with high capital cushions and an established track record, Empower Federal Credit Union is well-positioned to continue to thrive and be a source of strength for its membership.”

Empower Federal Credit Union was established in 1939 and has been a rock-solid partner for its members ever since. That’s 84 years of relationship-building and bond-strengthening. Everyone within its Field of Membership (FOM) should be proud to call Empower Federal Credit Union their credit union. 

Empower Federal Credit Union: “Committed to You.”
