How successful a credit union is at earning money affects its long-term survivability. Earnings may be retained by the credit union, boosting its capital cushion, or be used to address problematic loans, potentially making the credit union better prepared to withstand economic shocks. Credit unions that are losing money, however, have less ability to do those things.
