Adding an AU

Hey guys,


I want my younger brother (just entering college) to get a head start on the credit game. I want to add him on as an AU on one of my accounts so he can start getting some credit. Probably will do AMEX so he gets backdated a couple of years. My only question is, does this affect my score in any way? Is there a HP or anythign involved? 

My Wallet:
AMEX Gold: NPSL 8/2011
AMEX BCE: $2k 3/2013
Amazon Visa: $400 3/2013

EQ (MyFICO): 691
EX (AMEX): 692

Re: Adding an AU

This will not affect your score. There are no inquiries on either of your reports to add him as an AU. Of course, his usage will be reported as your usage, but I'm sure you already took that into consideration.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
