How successful a credit union is at making money affects its safety and soundness. A credit union can retain its earnings, increasing its capital cushion, or put them to work addressing problematic loans, potentially making the credit union better able to withstand financial shocks. Conversely, losses diminish a credit union's ability to do those things.
