How successful a credit union is at earning money has an effect on its safety and soundness. Earnings may be retained by the credit union, giving a boost to its capital buffer, or be used to address problematic loans, likely making the credit union better able to withstand economic trouble. Obviously, credit unions that are losing money have less ability to do those things.
