A credit union's earnings performance affects its safety and soundness. Earnings can be retained by the credit union, giving a boost to its capital buffer, or be used to address problematic loans, potentially making the credit union better able to withstand financial shocks. Losses, on the other hand, lessen a credit union's ability to do those things.
