The Federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) Notice

The Federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act prohibits creditors from discriminating against credit applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age (provided that the applicant has the capacity to enter into a binding contract): because all or part of the applicant’s income is derived from a public assistance program; or because the applicant has in good faith exercised any rights under the Consumer Credit Protection Act. The Federal Agency that administers compliance with this law concerning this creditor is: Federal Trade Commission, Equal Credit Opportunity, Washington, DC 20580. We are required to disclose to you that you need not disclose income from alimony, child support or separate maintenance payment if you choose not to do so.

Under ECOA, we will ask you to confirm your intent to apply jointly for credit if you wish to have a co-borrower.
