Millennials Credit Situations
2 Timothy 2:3-7
3Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. 5Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules. 6The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops. 7Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.
All who are prudent act with knowledge, but fools expose their folly.

Understanding Repayment Plans
Credit Card Debt
Know who, what, where and when first
Consolidate wherever possible
Refinance but avoid extensions if possible
Pay more than minimum payment
Pay with excess cash received(bonuses, raises, gifts)
Consider jobs that offer forgiveness

Income-Contingent Repayment Plan

Never borrow with a negative loan to value ratio
Refinance your mortgage.
If you own 20% or more equity in your home, make sure you aren't paying for private mortgage insurance (PMI).
Fight the tax assessment. Many mortgage payments include property taxes, which is determined by your county.
Pay one extra principal payment each year
Consider paying bi-monthly payments
Whenever possible use a fifteen year mortgage loan
Not amount, its utilization : keep credit utilization low
Use only for emergencies
Only purchase items that you can repay in one billing cycle
Pay higher interest rate cards off first -
Pay off card with the lowest balance first-
Consolidate balances and destroy excess cards-
Avoid secured credit cards-
spending not credit
Consider using savings account to pay your credit card
Do not be deceived into...
Distrusting God’s goodness
Disbelieving God’s word
Rejecting God’s authority
Let's Talk about Credit
What is a FICO score?
1 Peter 4
Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Romans 12:2 NLT
Above all else guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
…Your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you”
...and my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus
God knows and supplies
Scripture provides the answers
Discipline is key to results
Faith requires that my clock, my resources, and my time lines up with my compass - the direction I'm trying to go.
6Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
8Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
10And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11To him be the power for ever and ever.

A credit score attempts to condense a borrowers credit history into a single number.
Any score under 600 could be considered a risk to “some” lenders.
