Veteran Benefits regardless of credit score

Veteran Benefits regardless of credit score
On our Veteran Benefits ads our Military Veterans are confused on why the credit score on VA Loans can get approved with a 600 middle score. It also bothers them that they cannot get a VA Loan if their credit is less or even more than 600. The Veteran Benefits and guidelines can be a bit challenging, but it’s possible to get approval with a 600. Higher credit helps significantly in the process but there are other critical factors such as your debt ratio and your last one year credit history.
