Auto loan program for members with minimal to no established credit.
The CU noticed a strong trend in loan applications that the current policy didn’t quite address, “We’ve showed an increase in auto loan applications from members with no or limited credit.” said Karen Gouldmann, chief executive officer, “We weren’t able to approve the auto loans based on our existing policy. So we analyzed what effects including limited credit auto lending would have on our asset quality, risk management and capital; then made a change for the better.”
The change in policy now allows members with less than two years established credit to qualify for an auto loan provided they meet additional lending criteria. “To balance the risk and protect our members money, we’ve limited the dollar amount based on established credit history,” Gouldmann explained.
Loans to members with no credit are $10,000 maximum, less than one year established credit is $12,000 maximum & between one and two years established credit is $18,000. The maximum term for limited credit auto loans is 60 months.
“This is a great addition to our product portfolio.” said Mary Ann Caskey, chief marketing officer. “The CU now has two products to assist members without credit to get credit established in a financially responsible way. This auto program & the New Credit Visa Credit Card. I wish someone had these programs when I was younger!”
