I want to apply for a personal loan with NFCU I have good scores but short history depending on who they pull. EX has an old account from 1995.
First, NFCU pulls Equifax, unless it's a trimerge for a mortgage app. I don't know what criteria they use for personal loans, but I've read of people being "instantly" approved. Do you have regular deposits going into an NFCU account, via (perhaps) direct deposit or regular ACH transfers? Do you have an NFCU credit card? They seem to greatly value your internal history with them. And they really love you if you park your money with them.
Friendly, Supportive & Respectful

Thanks for the responses. I opened up a savings with NFCU.
Based on my EQ 3-in-1 Score Watch credit report this is what it states:
inquiries in last 3 yrs- 3
recent acct opened-12/2009
oldest acct acct- 9/2007
length of credit 2 yrs 5 mos.
average acct age 10 months
I only have a mortgage, installment loan, walmart card, closed First Premier card & 2 closed Aaron accounts just recently paid. What are my chances?
