A credit union's earnings performance has an effect on its long-term survivability. Earnings may be retained by the credit union, giving a boost to its capital cushion, or be used to deal with problematic loans, likely making the credit union better able to withstand financial trouble. Conversely, losses lessen a credit union's ability to do those things.
