How successful a credit union is at making money has an effect on its safety and soundness. A credit union can retain its earnings, boosting its capital buffer, or put them to work addressing problematic loans, likely making the credit union more resilient in times of trouble. Obviously, credit unions that are losing money have less ability to do those things.
