A credit union's ability to earn money has an effect on its safety and soundness. Earnings can be retained by the credit union, increasing its capital cushion, or be used to deal with problematic loans, potentially making the credit union better prepared to withstand financial trouble. Conversely, losses lessen a credit union's ability to do those things.
On Bankrate's earnings test, BOEING EMPLOYEES scored 20 out of a possible 30, exceeding the national average of 10.11.
One indication that the credit union is running ahead of its peers in this area was its earnings ratio of 0.00 percent in our test, above the average for all credit unions.
