How successful a credit union is at making money affects its safety and soundness. Earnings may be retained by the credit union, boosting its capital cushion, or be used to address problematic loans, potentially making the credit union more resilient in times of trouble. Losses, on the other hand, take away from a credit union's ability to do those things.
