A credit union's ability to earn money has an effect on its safety and soundness. A credit union can retain its earnings, increasing its capital cushion, or put them to work addressing problematic loans, likely making the credit union more resilient in times of trouble. Credit unions that are losing money, however, are less able to do those things.
