Refinance: Age a consideration?

My parents wish to refinance their home.  With credit ratings near the 800 mark, will their ages 77&78 be a factor on whether or not they are approved?
 
Thanks

It is illegal to discriminate based on age.

True...
 
However at that age, it's unlikely they have salaries. They most likely live on a fixed income. That can be a problem when figuring DTI vs a younger person with a salaried position.
