A credit union's ability to earn money has an effect on its safety and soundness. Earnings may be retained by the credit union, giving a boost to its capital buffer, or be used to deal with problematic loans, likely making the credit union more resilient in times of trouble. Losses, on the other hand, take away from a credit union's ability to do those things.
