A credit union's earnings performance has an effect on its long-term survivability. A credit union can retain its earnings, increasing its capital cushion, or use them to deal with problematic loans, likely making the credit union more resilient in times of trouble. Losses, on the other hand, reduce a credit union's ability to do those things.
