A credit union's ability to earn money has an effect on its long-term survivability. A credit union can retain its earnings, expanding its capital cushion, or put them to work addressing problematic loans, likely making the credit union more resilient in times of trouble. Conversely, losses take away from a credit union's ability to do those things.
