How successful a credit union is at earning money affects its long-term survivability. A credit union can retain its earnings, increasing its capital cushion, or use them to address problematic loans, potentially making the credit union better prepared to withstand economic shocks. Losses, on the other hand, take away from a credit union's ability to do those things.
