A credit union's profitability has an effect on its long-term survivability. A credit union can retain its earnings, expanding its capital buffer, or use them to deal with problematic loans, potentially making the credit union better prepared to withstand financial trouble. Credit unions that are losing money, however, are less able to do those things.
