Jcp- will adding an au with different last name and address report to bureaus?

[ Edited ]
Does it report to the credit bureau if the creditor only gets the name? What is the person lives at a different address then the account holder? Jcp said they only need the name and nothing else.

Re: Adding an authorized user with just a name

When I was put on DW's Costco Amex as AU, they also asked for my address, I believe.   no SS #, tho.

It varies by lender. Some connect the dots, others don't.

 

Different address and especially with different name might well not report, unless there's a shared address listed in the past addresses.

 

Which card/ bank/ lender are you considering? --or who only asked for the name?

Re: Adding an authorized user with just a name

Since my mom has a jcp card that is 20 years old low utilization and never late she was going to put me as an authorized user tomorrow and when I called jcp they said they will only ask for my name. We have different last names and live at different addresses? I don't know if there is a way they can add my ssn so it would report. The csr said they don't do that but I read somewhere on this board that that's what they did. I really want her good trade line to help me!

Re: Adding an authorized user with just a name

You might want to edit your thread title on the original post, something like

 

JC Penney: Adding an authorized user with just a name?

 

All you have to do is go back to your original post, click Options over on the right, select Edit, and place your cursor at the beginning of the Subject box. Then you could add the question mark at the end, if you want to get fancy.

 

I don't know if JCP reports AU's, but that would be a way of catching the eyes of those who do know.

Did a little searching and came accross this thread by Booner72, I think that basically answers your question, unless someone else has had a different experience!

Re: Adding an authorized user with just a name

Thanks for finding that for me. I updated my address on transunion to match my moms so hopefully that will help
