Will LOQBOX affect my credit score?
The process of unlocking your LOQBOX Save early will not directly affect your credit score. When your LOQBOX Save loan first appears on your credit report it’s normal to see a bit of a dip in your credit score.
Does LOQBOX do a hard inquiry?
Hard Credit Inquiry They’ ll have full visibility of everything on your credit report and leave a “footprint” – meaning other inquiries in the future will see a record of this hard inquiry.
Can I raise my credit score 100 points in a month?
For most people, increasing a credit score by 100 points in a month isn’t going to happen. But if you pay your bills on time, eliminate your consumer debt, don’t run large balances on your cards and maintain a mix of both consumer and secured borrowing, an increase in your credit could happen within months.

Can I unlock my LOQBOX early?
Technically, yes. When you break open your piggy bank, you get back the amount you’ve paid so far. Anything you haven’t paid back is used to settle the outstanding loan, so you can unlock whenever and never be left in debt. But if you haven’t made enough regular payments, unlocking early could harm your credit history.
What happens if I unlock my Loqbox?
When you ‘unlock’ your LOQBOX early (before the 12 months time period), this won’t directly impact your credit score. As you make your monthly LOQBOX payments, they’ll report these payments to the credit reference agencies and it will positively impact your payment history and credit score.
How long does it take to unlock your Loqbox?

Is a 600 A bad credit score?
Your score falls within the range of scores, from 580 to 669, considered Fair. A 600 FICO® Score is below the average credit score. Some lenders see consumers with scores in the Fair range as having unfavorable credit, and may decline their credit applications.
How fast does your credit score go up after paying debt?
There’s no guarantee that paying off debt will help your scores, and doing so can actually cause scores to dip temporarily at first. In general, however, you could see an improvement in your credit as soon as one or two months after you pay off the debt.
How do I quit Loqbox?
Yes. You can cancel your LOQBOX Save by unlocking your savings. When you unlock your LOQBOX Save you get back the amount you’ve paid so far. Anything you haven’t paid back is used to settle the outstanding loan, so you can unlock whenever and never be left in debt.
Can you cancel Loqbox?
You can close your LOQBOX at any time, through ClearScore Build. However, if you haven’t made payments on time or if you ‘unlock’ early you could negatively impact your credit history and score.
Can you have more than 1 Loqbox?
We don’t recommend having more than one LOQBOX Save at a time. Because LOQBOX Save is financed, taking out more credit while trying to build a good credit history can have a negative impact.
