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:

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

Reclassification based on supervisory criteria other than net worth.

Subject to §702.102(b) and (c), the NCUA Board may reclassify a “well capitalized,” “adequately capitalized” or “moderately capitalized” new credit union to the next lower net worth category (each of such actions is hereinafter referred to generally as “reclassification”) in either of the circumstances prescribed in §702.102(b).

Net worth categories.

A federally-insured credit union defined as “new” under this section shall be classified (Table 6 page 1))—

(1) Well capitalized if it has a net worth ratio of seven percent (7%) or greater;

(2) Adequately capitalized if it has a net worth ratio of six percent (6%) or more but less than seven percent (7%);

(3) Moderately capitalized if it has a net worth ratio of three and one-half percent (3.5%) or more but less than six percent (6%);

For purposes of this part, a credit union must determine its net worth category classification at the end of each calendar quarter using two measures:

(1) The net worth ratio as defined in §702.2(g); and

(2) If determined to be applicable under §702.103, a risk-based net worth requirement

Secondary capital accounts for Community Development credit unions:

Federally insured credit unions designated as low-income may establish secondary capital accounts, which examiners should review for compliance with §701.34(b) of the NCUA Rules and Regulations.

Before offering secondary capital accounts, the credit union must adopt, and forward to the appropriate regional director, a written plan for use of the secondary capital account funds and subsequent liquidity needs to meet repayment requirements upon maturity of the accounts.
