Even with low job gains, hard hit groups seeing improvement. 6+ Month unemployment down from February 2021 highs with 3.2M falling into this group ending August 2021.
The Net Charge-Off Rate Declined Further to a Record Low Net charge-offs continued to decline for the fourth consecutive quarter (down $8.3 billion, or 53.2 percent). In second quarter, the net charge-off rate fell 30 basis points to 0.27 percent, a record low. A decline in net charge-offs of credit card loans (down $3.3 billion, or 39.8 percent) and C&I loans (down $2.9 billion, or 69.7 percent) drove three-fourths (75.5 percent) of the reduction in net charge-offs from the year-ago quarter.
