DOLFCU Thrives in the Face of Adversity


September 2020: Coral Gables, Florida

BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Credit Union and Bank Rating Firm, proudly announces that Department of Labor Federal Credit Union, more commonly known as DOLFCU, in Washington, D.C., has once again been awarded its highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability. That means that, even in the current climate, DOLFCU is able to excel in such areas as capital adequacy, profitability and asset quality. Earning and maintaining this top rating for 22 consecutive quarters, especially now, perhaps makes this accomplishment even more significant.

“DOLFCU is proof that some financial institutions are able to thrive even in the face of substantial adversity. And we know the secret. As a member-centric credit union, DOLFCU has a deep understanding of the needs and conditions of its members,” reflects Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. Credit unions uniquely coalesce with the needs of their members and work toward a common goal. DOLFCU has demonstrated this commitment since its inception in 1935 and today, its dedication is stronger than ever.

DOLFCU continues to be there for its membership. Whether in person at the Frances Perkins Branch, or virtually at, 5-Star rated DOLFCU is at your service. (The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) branch is temporarily closed.)
