Re: Question about PENFED

Probably waiting on some sort of verfication by underwriting who doesn't work Sunday typically.

 

Not a big deal in my opinion.

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 679, EQ 8 708, TU 711, EX 702* (07/14/14, EX older)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ '04 (01/01/15)

Re: Question about PENFED

Every app goes to manual underwriters.  You got the automated underwriting decision.   They may ask for more documents and don't be surprised if cl gets reduced in end.   Btw, mind giving us some details on your credit file such as score, credit lines, aaoa, etc.

Re: Question about PENFED

Congrats! Verification with them sometimes takes awhile. It took me almost a week to get everything situated with them. They have a Research Department that filters all reviewed information to be cross-checked and updated in the system. Enjoy your card! I know I love mine :smileyhappy:
