A credit union's ability to earn money affects its safety and soundness. Earnings can 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 shocks. Obviously, credit unions that are losing money are less able to do those things.
