How Credit Limit Increases Work

Your credit limit is the amount of money that the creditor has determined you can be responsible for paying. When deciding on your credit limit, there are several factors for the creditor to consider.

Credit ScoreThe FICO and Vantage 4.0 are the two commonly accepted credit scores.
Credit HistoryYour credit history tacks on-time bill payments. This is an indication of how likely you are to make your payments.
IncomeYour income must be high enough to ensure that you are able to afford the additional payment.
Monthly BillsThe bills you already pay will allow the creditor to determine if you are able to comfortably pay the additional bill.
Credit UtilizationThis is the amount of available credit that you have compared to the amount you use.
Hard InquiriesWhen you apply for credit or a loan or a large purchase, the creditor will inquire about your credit score. These are known as hard inquiries, and they will lower your credit score.

Who Can Request a Credit Limit Increase?

While anyone can request a credit limit increase, the request will result in a hard inquiry on your credit report, which can cause your credit score to go down.

What To Consider Before Requesting a Credit Limit Increase

You must consider the effect that requesting a higher credit limit will have on your credit score. You should also consider your finances and whether you can afford to take on the increased payments. If you take on the increase without the means to pay for it, you could wind up in serious financial trouble. Lower credit scores can affect your ability to buy a car or house, rent an apartment, or even get a job.
