Re: PenFed askd for paystubs after app

They probably wouldn't be asking for documents if they were going to deny you.  I would give them a call or just fax in the docs.

Re: PenFed askd for paystubs after app

Keep checking the app status link for "approved" or "transferred".  That means your good.

 

Good Luck!

My guess is, and it's only a guess, they want to see what your income is, to support the credit lines/increases you've gotten.   Whether that means approval or denial, you'll know soon enough, again a guess that later today or tomorrow you'll be able to get a decision, depending on how busy their underwriters are.

811 for what pull?  TU? EQ? EX?  Based on the scores in your signature, looks like you got the latest/greatest version from whatever!  Congrats on that!

PenFed uses the FICO Next Gen score (Equifax's version is the Pinnacle 2.0).  The score range is 150-950, and it looks more heavily at revolving debt, if I recall correctly.


Starting Score: Jan 2012: EQ - 659, TU08 - 670, EX - ???
Current Score:April 2014: EQ - 772, TU08 - 782, EX - 754
Last App:3/21/14

Re: PenFed askd for paystubs after app

Hopefully OP will be approved. I remember reading that PenFed sometimes denies due to pyramiding debt even with great pyt history.
