Is Navy Federal Credit Union Forgiving?

I see a lot of posts about Navy Federal Credit Union and would love to get back in. The back story is that I had a NFCU credit card and loan back in the 2006. I ended up filing for Chapter 13 and the loan and card were included. They got something from the trustee but not much. I think it was about $10,000. Does anyone know how forgiving they are? Or would I be blacklisted for life? Just curious.

NFCU will not extend any credit products to you untill you make them 100% whole again.

^^^^^ What they said 👆🏽. I was once kicked out the club, but they let me back in after I paid every red cent owed.

@SUPERSQUID, yes, I am very happy with PenFed so I'll leave NFCU alone. No use poking that bear.
