Health Rating Updates

Our financial health ratings are based on bank data that the FDIC releases each quarter. The FDIC and NCUA released Q3 financial data around December 1st. We have imported this data, and all of our bank and credit union financial health ratings are based on this Q3 data. Q4 data was released last week, and we will soon be updating our health ratings based on this Q4 data.
