They are not required by law to report every month or even report at all.

So I went up to the loan office today to inquire about it. I was told that they don't have to report to the CB but every 4-5 months. WHAT???? I will NEVER do business with them again. Never really wanted to to begin with. They are one of those slick companies that sends you "loans in the mail'. They sent me a couple of checks back around Christmas time....and wrote in big bold letters "THIS IS A REAL CHECK"....by depositing it you agree to the terms and conditions...blah blah blah!!! I'm a BIG Christmas spender, so the checks were tooo tempting!!! NEVER AGAIN!!!!!Is there anything I can do to make them report my PIF accounts??? Maybe I made em made by paying my loans off early, but geez!!! This could really help my scores by bringing my util down!!

Lowering your revolving util to 1-9% will boost your scores significantly, the same cannot be said about a loan reporting PIF, your scores might slightly improve or they might not. But I also understand it feels good to see paid as agreed, $0 balanced on your CRs.
