How successful a credit union is at earning money has an effect on 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 able to withstand economic shocks. However, credit unions that are losing money are less able to do those things.
