How successful a credit union is at earning money has an effect on its safety and soundness. A credit union can retain its earnings, expanding its capital buffer, or put them to work addressing problematic loans, likely making the credit union more resilient in tough times. Losses, on the other hand, lessen a credit union's ability to do those things.
