The EQ Fico resilience score appears to put a lot of focus on monthly payment obligations for installment loans in absolute $$ amount without regard to current B/L ratio. Aggregate outstanding loan balance in absolute $$ is a primary scoring factor as well. I have a mortgage with a monthly payment of $1830. However, the B/L is under 5.4% and it will be paid off in October 2020. No other open loans.
Credit mix appears to be an issue with my profile as well (85% of open accounts are credit/charge cards). My proflie is considered a moderate risk and scores 48 on the EQ Fico resilience index. That's quite a bit worse than I had expected but, at least it's considered stable
- Side notes: 1) A Fico resilience score reason statement mentions AAoA of 8 years as a benchmark. 2) Preferred credit mix includes a mortgage + another type of installment loan + revolving credit accounts.
In typical Equifax style, my EQ Fico mortgage and EQ resilience scores are almost certainly being hurt by too many revolvers & charge cards with balances (5 of 6). Aggregate utilization is under 1% and individual card utilizations are all under 9%. That's EQ for you! [side note: my TU and EX mortgage scores were not hurt by 5 of 6 cards reporting balances.
I was rated 53 on the resilience index with 2 red flags - 1) High percent of revolving accounts. [All of my accounts are CC's] 2) No installment loan activity. [Don't have any open]
I can't locate this new score/rating on Equifax or MyFICO and I pay for both...I am a skinny branch personality, SO maybe ignorance is bliss, but since I have paid subscriptions, where would this new "scary times" rating be found?
@CreditobsessedinFL from the above, it appears to be included in the 3B from MF. I haven't updated yet to discover mine, though.
Looks like Equifax trying to make money off of the pandemic. Any opportunity to try to make another number to make some money!
Has anyone else seen this? It says i have too many revolving accounts and not enough installment loans. Should I actually be conserned abot this?
Equifax is my highest in every score. According to this I'm a Moderate risk with 1 flag; Revolving Balances.
Actually 4.64% AGG revolving UTL. Rounded up on MyFICO printscreen below.
From my 4/11 report
It certainly appears the resilience index looks at absolute dollar values in addition to the 5% for aggregate revolving utilization. After all, your red flag statement mentions "high revolving account balances". The $4400 aggregate balance must be considered high.
My total revolving balance was just over $1000 with overall utilization under 1%. It was not flagged as high. Perhaps an aggregate revolving threshold exists somewhere in the $1500 to $3000 range. There is likely an additional threshold at some higher level as well, say $10k.
My summary statements allude to the existance of aggregate installment loan balance threshold based on "high installment loan amounts due". This must relate to total monthly payment obligation or remaining aggregate balance on loans. I suspect the former since it is the installment payment that is "due". If that's true, then there must be a total payments due threshold below $1800. Otherwise there must be a total balance threshold at or below $12.5k.
Looking at your EQ accounts, you have 14 revolvers out of 18 accounts (77.7%) and no red flag with corresponding negative comment. I was flagged for too high a percentage of revolvers at 85.7%. My guess is an accounts ratio threshold for revolvers/total exists at 80%.
P.S. Your circle chart is different from the others posted (rotated 90 degrees). Fico updated the graphics?
Thanks @Birdman7, it isn't in my 3/5 3B report and it says I be eligible for another 3B report on 4/17, so perhaps I will be able to view it there. I wasn't able to find it on my regular Equifax report either. I will check again on 4/17.
