A credit union's earnings performance has an effect on its safety and soundness. Earnings may be retained by the credit union, expanding its capital buffer, or be used to deal with problematic loans, potentially making the credit union better able to withstand economic trouble. Losses, on the other hand, reduce a credit union's ability to do those things.
