How successful a credit union is at making money has an effect on its safety and soundness. 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 able to withstand economic shocks. Losses, on the other hand, diminish a credit union's ability to do those things.
