How successful a credit union is at earning money has an effect on its long-term survivability. Earnings may be retained by the credit union, increasing its capital cushion, or be used to deal with problematic loans, likely making the credit union better able to withstand economic trouble. Losses, on the other hand, reduce a credit union's ability to do those things.
