Walmart AU question

I just got my new WM card in the mail yesterday and set up my online account.

 

I went to go add the wifey as an AU and all it asked for was her name. Is that REALLY all that is needed for her to have the tradeline reporting on her credit reports?

 

When I added her to Cap 1 we had to fill out a whole application with SSNs, blood type, income, first-born child as collateral, etc.

 

Just a name seemed TOO easy.

Re: Walmart AU question

I added my daughter to my account as a AU and it took a few months but it now reports on her
EX and TU file.  Not sure about EQ.  Like you posted, no soc sec or other info was submitted.

Re: Walmart AU question

I added my hubby and that was all it asked for, and we got the alert on his report that the account had been added to him.

Re: Walmart AU question

I added my brother early this month and it already reports on TU, per CreditKarma.
