A credit union's profitability affects its long-term survivability. A credit union can retain its earnings, expanding its capital cushion, or put them to work addressing problematic loans, potentially making the credit union more resilient in times of trouble. Losses, on the other hand, diminish a credit union's ability to do those things.
