How successful a credit union is at making money has an effect on its long-term survivability. A credit union can retain its earnings, increasing its capital buffer, or put them to work addressing problematic loans, potentially making the credit union better able to withstand economic trouble. Credit unions that are losing money, however, have less ability to do those things.
