Playing with the EQ Score Power simulator. -90 point loss for 1 missed payment.

I hope this is wrong, not that I plan on getting a 30 day late. Wow. Can it hurt some folks that much to have just 1 late. EQ simulator says for my profile it will cost me -90 points. I take that as a complement. lol.
If we never set higher goals we would never get as far.

Yes, sweetie, that's the penalty you pay for all the hard work you did on your scores! Smiley Very Happy

I lost 50 points for a 30-day late when it first posted, and I promise you, at the time I was WAY lower than where you are now. Still am, in fact. Smiley Wink
