How Credit Limit Increases Work
A credit limit is the maximum amount you can charge on your credit card or the largest balance you can carry. First, you show the card issuer that you can handle a higher credit limit by paying your bills promptly and not going over the credit limit. At this point, they may decide to increase your credit limit.
Who Can Request a Higher Credit Limit?
There are a few general factors that make card issuers leader in raising your credit limit, including:
- If you've been approved for past credit limit increases and have handled it, you will likely get a future one.
- If you pay your bills on time and stay under your credit limit consistently. If you have a higher income for your area
- If you use the card frequently yet still manage to pay off your balance
Some factors count against you, such as:
- Being late with your payments consistently
- Having declared bankruptcy
- Having a history of credit limit increase combined with delinquent payments
When Can I Request a Credit Limit Increase From CEFCU?
You can at any time, but it will be heavily determined by your credit history and annual income.
What Information Will CEFCU Ask For?
CEFCU will request the following information:
- Your yearly income
- Your employment status
- Your Social Security Number
- Monthly mortgage or rent payment
Things to Consider Before Requesting a Credit Limit Increase From CEFCU
There are a few things to consider before you ask for a credit limit increase:
- If your job is stable, it would be bad to increase your credit limit and lose your job.
- Asking for too much of a credit increase or too frequently could affect your credit rating.
- How many other bills you're already paying.
However, we all need to splurge sometimes, and there are times you need a credit limit increase to get that item you have to have.
How to Request a Credit Limit Increase From CEFCU on Your Own
To raise your credit limit, you must request permission from the CEFCU by calling 1- 800 -858 -3400. There are problems with this, however.
You may not have time to wait for your phone call to go through. So you'll have to go through those phone trees until you talk to a person, and that can be frustrating.
Further, you may not want to give your personal information to someone on the phone, even if they work for a bank. And you have to go through the frustration of them trying to sell you extra services when you want a credit limit increase. There must be an easier way.
