What is a credit assessment?

This is the process taken by American Express to make sure that the person who applies will be able to follow through with their obligations set out by the Credit Card Contract.

The requirements are:

  • Are you able to repay?
  • Do you have any financial responsibility?
  • The chances of you not paying back debt
  • What your credit history looks like

Even though your credit history is protected under the Privacy Act, companies are able to access it to check your credit history.

Your credit history has a summary of all the credit you have applied for and what type of payer you are as well as if there are any outstanding debts in your name.
