How successful a credit union is at making money has an effect on its safety and soundness. A credit union can retain its earnings, expanding its capital cushion, or put them to work addressing problematic loans, likely making the credit union better prepared to withstand financial shocks. Losses, on the other hand, diminish a credit union's ability to do those things.
