A credit union's profitability has an effect on its long-term survivability. A credit union can retain its earnings, increasing its capital cushion, or put them to work addressing problematic loans, potentially making the credit union more resilient in times of trouble. Credit unions that are losing money, however, have less ability to do those things.
