eTrain: How to Read a Credit Bureau Report


How to Read a Credit Bureau Report

Credit bureau reports can be very confusing, even for experienced lenders, but they provide critical guidance in deciding the creditworthiness of a loan applicant.  How do you translate the credit bureau data into useful loan underwriting criteria?

Let credit expert Don Goldammer walk you through a credit report and show you how to interpret the data it contains. He will explain the significance of each section, so that you can make sound loan decisions for your credit union and its members.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Determine previous address and work history
  • Evaluate public record information on bankruptcies, liens, and judgments
  • Analyze payment patterns, including the frequency of late payments
  • Check for recent inquiries from other current or potential creditors
  • Identify other loans that you can bring to your credit union

Suggestion: You may find it helpful to have an actual credit report with you while viewing this program.

Who should attend?
Credit union professionals who use credit reports to underwrite loans or cross-sell other services, especially in these departments:

  • CEO
  • Member Service
  • Marketing
  • Business Development
  • Operations
