Stabilization Fund Earns Clean 2016 Audit

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The Temporary Corporate Credit Union Stabilization Fund has received a seventh consecutive clean audit opinion, the NCUA announced Tuesday.

During 2016, the Stabilization Fund’s financial condition remained stable, maintaining sufficient available liquidity to meet its obligations. This was the third consecutive year in which the Stabilization Fund had a positive net position. NCUA’s Chief Financial Officer will provide a detailed report at the scheduled March 16 open Board meeting.

KPMG LLP, the independent firm that audits the Stabilization Fund’s financial statements, issued an unmodified audit opinion with no reportable findings. The Office of the Inspector General released its report on the Stabilization Fund’s 2016 audited financial statements Tuesday. The Inspector General’s report and the Stabilization Fund’s financial statements are available online here.

Managed by the NCUA Board, the Stabilization Fund is a revolving fund in the U.S. Treasury that gives NCUA the necessary flexibility to manage costs to the credit union system resulting from losses on faulty mortgage-backed securities purchased by five failed corporate credit unions NCUA liquidated during the financial crisis. The Stabilization Fund is currently scheduled to close in 2021.

With the 2016 Stabilization Fund audit complete, NCUA will soon update its two public Web site sections detailing Corporate System Resolution Costs and NCUA Guaranteed Notes Program information through the final quarter of 2016.

NCUA will produce updated questions and answers covering final 2016 data on the total actual losses and implied write-downs on the failed corporates’ legacy assets and the most recent estimated loss projection ranges.
