Credit Reports:

When you apply for a loan, insurance, or credit card, a credit report file is started on you. The credit report documents where you live, work, if you have been sued or filed for bankruptcy, gives names of creditors that have looked at your credit reports, it tells what credit you have obtained and how you have paid on your bills, and other personal information that could be used in determining if you qualify for a loan.

Credit Rating Tiers:

The credit bureaus generate a credit score based on your credit experiences, such as your bill-paying history, outstanding debts, the age of your accounts, and if there have been any late payments or collection actions. Lenders use the credit information to determine whether to give you credit and how much to charge in the form of interest rates.  Consumers with good credit risk usually have higher scores.

Debt Ratio Calculations & Limit:

When you apply for a loan, loan officers will use information obtained from your application, credit report, and income verification to calculate a debt ratio.  The Debt ratio is defined and calculated as:  Total monthly credit indebtedness payments divided by total monthly gross salary.  Monthly credit indebtedness includes, but is not limited to:  Rent/Mortgage(s), garnishments, alimony, charge accounts, personal loans, and collateral - secured loans.

Credit Decision:

Loan Applications will be reviewed and a credit decision will be made on whether to grant or deny credit based on information submitted or obtained. 

Loan Denial is not limited to the following, but the following are just a few examples of where credit could be denied: 

  1. Member did not complete or sign their submitted loan application.
  2. Member did not provide required paperwork such as verification of income.
  3. Member’s Credit Report shows that the member is currently delinquent on established credit payments.
