Could Bad credit keep me from the Reserves?
« Reply #425 on: June 23, 2017, 08:18:03 »
Good morning,

I just came upon this forum a few days ago and have been digging through all the posts regarding the reserves, BMQ and applying. I noticed that some mentioned their credit scores as hindering their application and that's not something I had heard mentioned before, even at the info session I attended, Can anyone shed some light on how a bad credit score can hinder a Reservist application? I have debts from years ago that I am slowly chipping away at but I know some of them are in collections. This would be really disheartening for me if I my financial history keeps me out of the reserves. Thanks!

Credit history: financial problems can slow the enrolment process or, if there are related legal obligations that prevent you from deploying, may even disqualify you from the Forces.  If you have any debts, you will be asked about your plans to repay them.
