Re: change in income....nfcu approval?

If you can I would wait until your income goes back to normal.  The LOCs don't grow on their own and AFAIK require HPs for future CLIs so it's probably best to maximize the amount of credit you get from each.


If you are just looking for $500-2K to cover any accidental overdrafts for free then you probably would be OK.  Wait and you'd likely get approved for $5,000+.
