Q: Can a member unenroll from Credit Score?
A: Yes. On the Resources tab, they would select “Profile Settings,” scroll to the bottom, and select “Deactivate Credit Score Account.” Once unenrolled, members could choose to reenroll at any time through online or mobile banking.
Q: Do members receive alerts from Credit Score?
A: Yes! Members can receive credit alerts, monthly notices, and general messages from Credit Score.
Q: Can a member turn off email notifications from Credit Score?
A: In Credit Score, members can manage their email notifications by navigating to the Resources Tab, selecting “Profile Settings,” and change their preferences under Email Notifications. They can also change their subscription settings at the bottom of emails they receive.
Q: When does a member’s status change to inactive in Credit Score?
A: If a member does not log into online or mobile banking for 120 days, their Credit Score will go inactive, and they would be unenrolled. To reenroll, they would follow the normal enrollment procedures and they would regain access to their profile information.
Q: What scoring model does Credit Score use?
A: VantageScore 3.0
Q: What bureau does Credit Score pull credit profiles from?
Q: Can the credit score in Credit Score differ from other credit monitoring apps or loan applications?
A: Yes. Three major credit reporting bureaus—Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion—and two scoring models—FICO or VantageScore—determine credit scores. Financial institutions/lenders use different bureaus, as well as scoring models. Over 200 factors of a credit report may be considered when calculating a score, and each model may weigh credit factors differently. Hence, no scoring model is completely identical but should directionally be similar.
Q: How often can members refresh their credit score in Credit Score?
A: Every 24 hours. Member profiles will automatically be refreshed every seven days if they haven’t refreshed within that timeframe to ensure they always see up-to-date information.
Q: Will enrolling or accessing Credit Score affect member’s credit and potentially lower their score?
A: No. Checking credit scores on Credit Score is a “soft inquiry” which does not affect their credit score.
