NFCU just approved, now some questions...

[ Edited ]

I'm new to this forum and after reading for a few days I decided to try my luck using some of the great advice I saw on here. I knew about NFCU but failed to join before my contract with the USMC ended. Luckily for me my father retired from the Navy. I called yesterday to setup an account, called back today to confirm that I was approved and immediately asked to be transferred to the CC dept. A couple minutes later I hear the good news "You have been approved for $15,000 with a rate of 10.xx%" I was obviously very excited. My next highest CL was only 1k. So thank you for the info that led me to this!

 

Now for my question... I've read about asking for a CLI after 60 days, with the limit I have is that still recommended?

 

A little background on me... EX 743 according to PSECU, AAoA ~ 5.5 , 35% util, 50k/yr income, bought a house 13 months ago.

Congratulations and welcome 2x to the forum and the nfcu family yes you can always ask for a increase for a higher limit just keep in mind it will be a hard pull. Instead of waiting 2 months you could request this now instead of waiting 60 days. Im happy for you congrats againSmiley Happy Nfcu Rocks!
