Union experienced favorable financial performance in 2005. Some
of the highlights are:
dividend rate of 2.49% was paid on shares for the year compared
to 1.98% in 2004. Total dividends paid of $5.6 million represents
63.4% of the Credit Union’s total income of $8.9 million
expense ratio continues to be one of the lowest in the Credit
Union industry at 27.5%.
of delinquent loans at 0.21% is lower than year-end 2004 mark
of 0.64%. Loan losses on member loans at $82,509 reflects a
$48,153 increase over year-end 2004.
and retained earnings increased $732,485 from $20.2 million
to $20.9 million.
worth ratio continues to be very strong at 8.48% and is reflective
of our goals to provide members with the highest possible dividends
and lowest possible loan rates.
of significance were:
assets decreased $9.1 million from $249.5 million to $240.4

a decrease of 6.9%. The average return on investments for the
year was 3.3% compared to 3.1% for 2004.
Union looks forward to a relatively stable year in 2006. We anticipate
member share and loan account volumes to remain constant. Given
the general interest rate environment that we are currently experiencing,
we anticipate that our return on investments will increase slightly.
