Re: FICO score needed for ANY Navy Fedral Card???????????

I believe I was at a 580 when approved for the cashRewards.. with a $7K CL.  I don't know if time is a factor, but I've been a member since '83.

2011: EQ 580~
2012: EQ 620~
2013: EQ 641, TU98 645, TU04 635, TU08 635, EX 648 (lender)

It's been well documented that NFCU approves members with scores below 600. It may not be much but it is definitely YMMV.

YMMV...it's really hard to say with NFCU. They could decline you, aprove you instantly for $10k, or make you wait 3-5 days for a $500 card.

I think you would have a pretty good chance.  May not be instant, I'm waiting to hear back from them on my app.

Re: FICO score needed for ANY Navy Fedral Card???????????

I got 10K with a EQ 634 with an instant decison. I also had 1 Collection from 07' and had a very high util at the time of the application. I felt I had a shot at something because I read the consent and it stated they will counter-offer another product if you are declined. YMMV and good luck!

Re: FICO score needed for ANY Navy Fedral Card???????????

Had 7 baddies, down to 2. I have a 5 mo old Cap1 secured (credit ut 30%), never late. I was going to apply for the secured, but I think after all the positive responses I will try for the unsecured. Maybe I should get one more month (May) of the Cap1 reporting and try to get my uti down to 10%. My ultimate goal is approval for a car loan in mid June through Navy Fed, so I was thinking the card would look good as far as establishing a relationship with them!
