A credit union's earnings performance affects its long-term survivability. Earnings may be retained by the credit union, increasing its capital cushion, or be used to address problematic loans, likely making the credit union better able to withstand financial trouble. Losses, on the other hand, reduce a credit union's ability to do those things.
