How Much will a Foreclosure Affect My Credit Score?

A foreclosure has a significant negative impact on your credit. The higher your credit score was before the foreclosure, the more points you can expect it to drop. For example, if you had a credit score of 680 before the foreclosure, you should expect your credit score to drop below 600 after foreclosure. But if you had a higher credit score of 780 before the foreclosure, your credit score will end up dropping to the low 600s.

Will One Late Payment Affect My Credit Score? (Late Payment Credit Score)

Although one late payment on a loan may not seem like a big deal, it can still have an effect on your credit, especially if the payment is more than 30 days late. If you have a very high credit score (780 or more), your credit will be more severely impacted. For example, a payment that is 30 days late could cause your credit score to drop by 100 points! With the Skip a Payment option, you won’t have to worry about this.

Will a Lost or Stolen Credit Card Affect My Credit Score?

A lost credit card will not directly hurt your credit score. However, it will reduce the average length of your credit history. That could end up lowering your score. If you don’t quickly change your automatic payments over to your new card, you could miss a payment. This would also lower your credit score.


* Access to this feature is available to members who have either 5 monthly card transactions (debit or credit) or an existing current loan.
