I have to say that Navy Federal is a financial institution that I find way too scary to do business with. I see the crazy high limits posted for people with average income and low credit scores, along with some of the BK hits posted on them around here - and I wonder how they pass their Federal audits. I think they are at a high risk of insolvency, based on what I have seen. They need to tighten up a whole lot, and do some balance chasing on some folks. Just my thoughts.


How many times has NFCU declined you?


I have never applied for anything with NFCU, although I am a veteran and could easily.

Re: What is up with NAVY giving low CL CC these days?

Sorry envision the decent size couple million dollar CU or a regional few Billion dollar joint but NFCU can fund a few small countries, their pockets are ok....

Especially, when one considers their consumer base minus the huge brick n mortar NON investment to reach that size and have the loan portfolio etc they have compared to what banks and other institutions had to spent just on rent & mortgages, let along advertising and labor....

Again Navy didn't need or have to build credibility, they had built in credibility and trust from Day one, when bled into the private sector no fuss no muss....and boom never looked back

Re: What is up with NAVY giving low CL CC these days?

Kiljoy-
I applied for CC's at NFCU and Penfed in July. Penfed approved me for 2k and Navy declined me. I have had a Cap1 QS with a 15k limit since April. My TU FICO score was about 705 at the time I think. Bk dc 7/2015. I applied and got NFCU's securred card instead. So based on my experience NFCU is no pushover.

NFCU has been around since the 1930's.

Re: What is up with NAVY giving low CL CC these days?

If you ask me to borrow money, i will only let you borrow a small amount until i get to know you, specially if you have a not so good record.  If your record shows otherwise, i might let you borrow a bit more. 

 

CLs are given based on your credit profile and internal scoring. I'm sure your friend will get nice CLIs if he/she shows responsability with the card Smiley Happy

The positive thing about NFCU, even if they give you low SL, you can get good amount of CLI after 90 days as long as your reports look good like low utilization etc.

Re: What is up with NAVY giving low CL CC these days?

I'm not sure that's necessarily true.  I've been with NFCU for less than a year, and I just opened a second card with them today and they gave me a 20K SL on instant approval.  That's in addition to my other 2 lines in my info below.  Data points below as well.

EQ-679 TU-712 EX 654 // Barclay Apple Rewards Visa - $1150 / BOA Platinum MC Secured - $500 / Chase Southwest Platinum Visa - $4000 / Overstock - $3800 (SCT) / Wayfair - $2800 (SCT) / PenFed Plat Cash Rewards Visa - $5000 / NFCU cashRewards Visa Signature- $22000 / NFCU CLOC - $15000 / Citi Secured - $300 / AMEX BCE - $2000 / AMEX ED - $2800 / Chase Amazon VS - $4000

That's what I'm hoping for--I just got approved early this morning for $5K--I'm hoping I can at least get it up to $15K when I'm eligible for my first CLI.
