Payment is payroll deductible


Recommended Posts

In reviewing my Equifax report, I noticed 4 accounts that have comments saying "Payment is payroll deductible."  3 of the accounts are closed and charged off credit cards.  The 4th is open and being paid as agreed with never any lates.  It is clearly not an error in reporting by the creditors because it shows like this on each account (with different dates):

04/2016 Payment is payroll deductible

08/2016 Payment is payroll deductible

02/2017 Payment is payroll deductible

 

I am 100% Positive I have no judgements against me that would enable a credit card debt to be payroll deductible.  Is this an effort on behalf of the creditors to further damage my credit by making it appear that an there has been a judgement against me for a particular debt when that has never actually occurred?  I've done extensive searching online and haven't found any answer as to why this comment appears.

There are plenty of payments that could be payroll deductible, not the least of which would be anything to an employee credit union or even a credit card for the employer.  The comment would ALSO be applicable to anything such as child support. 

 

Without knowing WHAT sort of account this was attached to, no other guidance could be offered other than to note that comments generally play no role in scoring.

are these positive tradelines? regardless, comments mean nothing for FICO.

 

I'm curious why you think creditors are trying to "further damage" your credit.

 

oh, and are you reading paper copies of your four major reports?

I really don't know of a credit analyst that actually reads the miscellaneous commentary on a per tradeline basis.  As you posted those comment 3 of them are 4+ years old and the other one is 3+ years old.

 

Should be easy to prove, if your computer generated paystub shows no deductions, levies, nor garnishments, or even child support obligations.

      I’m newly separated and I’m trying to re-establish my credit and financial independence.  There are 4 collections on my credit report that my husband was responsible for when we were together in 2020.  We both had extensive blood work done by a lab of which he was paying. We separated and he has not been paying so it went to collections and showed up on my report. 
       
      I just disputed them online a few days ago and am waiting to see if they are removed. It has my name and not his. Is it even conceivable they will be deleted?  My score is in the 500 range right now. I don’t have much credit but want to repair and build.

      Hello all. The title says just about everything. Is it known whether or not AMEX holds closed accounts against you when opening new ones?
       
      I had three (3) AMEX accounts, none of them were Gold. I entered all three in a DMP (I wanted to keep one open, but the DMP told me not to or else lenders may not accept the plan). I just paid off all three well ahead of the end of the DMP end date. To my knowledge, I have not be subject to an F/R.
       
      FICO scores as follows:
      EX 713
      TU 717
      EQ 701
       
      I was approved for the CSP yesterday (7/23/21) so I will have a new account lowering my AAoA. I not looking to apply for the AMEX Gold for a few months (depending on your feedback).
       
      Thanks!

      Hi All,
       
       
      I'm trying to understand the best approach on good will letters for two cards that I settled a few years ago and finished paying in 2020.
       
      I had a Bank of America card and Amex which were both charged off after working with a debt settlement company. I was then sued by both cards and BoA garnished my bank account.
       
      After hiring a lawyer, the accounts got settled and I finished paying last year. However, the law firm I hired didn’t secure any guarantee to remove the cards from my credit report after payment.
       
      I'm starting to look for car leases through Honda and want to improve my scores to get the best rate/amount before I apply so I’m trying to figure out how to handle those two accounts in particular.
       
      My FICO scores are currently - Ex: 646; Eq: 657; TU: 617.
       
      The issues are:
      * Serious delinquency
      * Few accounts paid on time
      * No loan activity
      * Bad payment history
       
      I've done a few things to start counteracting the effects, including:
      * Opening a credit card account with Amex (1k limit) in November of last year, not using it too much and paying it in full each month.
      * Opening a Capital One card (2k limit) in April, using it more frequently for every day purchases and paying full balances every few weeks.
      * Opening a credit builder loan this month to establish a consistent payment history.
      * Asking  my girlfriend who has excellent credit and a long credit history to put me on as a registered user.
       
      I think these are good steps to take, but the obvious big issue is the serious delinquency, so I'm trying to get the credit cards removed from my CR. 
       
      I've disputed the cards to try to have them removed from all three CRAs and they both came back as verified, so that didn’t work.
       
      My next step is going to be a good will letter to both creditors.
       
      I'm mainly planning on highlighting the circumstances (divorce, undisciplined spending, etc) that caused me to default. 
       
      I then want to highlight with Amex that I have a new card with them and have been very responsible over the course of the last few months. For both cards, I want to highlight all of the progress I've made in my financial life, learning to budget and to be disciplined about financial management, my changed views on credit, etc. 
       
      My hope is that they will remove the accounts from my CR and that will highlight my positive payment history on past loans, etc. 
       
       
      My main question for the group is, do you see any issues with my approach (mainly with regards to the goodwill letter, but generally is also welcome)? 
       
      Should I try to remove individual payments instead of trying to remove the entire cards?
       
      I did have a positive payment history with each card at some point, so I feel this could be a more useful approach, but it seems a lot more work for whoever reads the letter vs just deleting the account completely. 
       
      Any other advice on what to include? Would it be crazy to include budgets, net worth statements, etc to prove that I’m on the up and up?
       
      Thanks in advance!

      I haven’t logged on in a bit, but I’ve been gardening and bringing up my score after my BK discharge in 2019. I applied for a Lowe’s account and got a 7-10 day message with a reference number. I noticed that my credit was not pulled. When I called them, the overseas customer service rep transferred me back to a stateside fraud analyst. They made me go through some website to record myself for five seconds and the take pictures of my drivers license. After that, the verification website instructed me to call in with a passcode. I called back in and the woman put me on hold. While on hold, I got notification that my credit was pulled and then she comes back on the line and says “Congratulations” and provided me with my credit limit. I forgot the exact amount, but it has a weird limit ending that ended in 37. It was under 5k and was something like $4,537 or $4,837. I was thrown off by the last two number as I’m used to it being 00. 
       
      1) Has anyone gotten a seemingly random credit limit with Lowe’s (Synchrony)?
       
      2) Has anyone gone through that verification process before?
       
      it’s been about 18 months since I applied for a credit card and this is my first store card (other than Kohl’s since I shop there for work clothes). Feeling out of the loop all of a sudden. Lol
