Sometimes numbers can be deceiving; take your Delinquency Ratio, for example.   It probably looks pretty good right now.  Unfortunately, it does not warn that there is a wave of delinquencies heading your way! Record unemployment and a fractured economy will not bring good news. It won’t be long before the stimulus money, modifications and forbearances and other rescue options are exhausted. Many of your members are going to be heading to the local bankruptcy attorney and you need to be prepared.
