will a CU pull hurt fico? (Loan Health Check up)

Hi everyone,


Our credit union offers a "loan health check-up" for free and includes a cr and fico.  How much will the pull hurt us?  We are currently cleaning up with hopes to get a mortgage in the near future.


DH = CU pull on 03/2012 was 551, just did scorewatch today and it was 618.

Mine = CU pull on 03/2012 was 587, my SW on 11/15/2012 was 627.


DH has bad debt of 13k (3 accnts) and we both have some lates from a couple years ago that i am currently GW.  I just want to make sure we will keep going forward and not take any steps backward.


Best wishes to you all.




HuntingMama:  Dec 2012 = EQ scorewatch 649, TU myfico 649

It might be a soft pull so no FICO impact. Many CUs offer that service w/out a hard pull.
