How successful a credit union is at earning money affects its long-term survivability. A credit union can retain its earnings, giving a boost to its capital cushion, or put them to work addressing problematic loans, potentially making the credit union better prepared to withstand economic trouble. Losses, on the other hand, reduce a credit union's ability to do those things.
