  • If the status code is PIF or SIF, then the account must have previously reported and must be reporting now as a 62 or DA.

  • The client must be set to report (Main Menu> System Administration> Maintain Clients> Add/Edit/Delete Clients) . If the Client is changed to not report, previously reported accounts will continue to report until they are deleted or paid.

  • The balance on the account must meet the minimum balance requirements set in the CB SYSGEN menu (Main Menu> Bureau Services> Reporting Metro 2 Format> Credit Reporting System Definitions ). A minimum balance can also be set for each client (Main Menu> System Definitions> Maintain Clients> Add/Edit/Delete Clients). Setting a minimum balance on the client will supersede the minimum balance in the Credit Reporting System Generation screen. If the account's balance drops below the minimum balance settings it will continue to report as long as the account met the minimum balance requirements when it first reported.

  • There must be a date of delinquency that is before the date of referral.

  • The number of delay days must have passed. This will depend on how clients or credit reporting system definitions are setup and will only apply if the account has not previously reported.

    • Each client can be set to delay credit reporting by any number of days relative to the Date of Service (DOS) or the Date of Referral (DOR - Report Delay Days) (Main Menu> System Administration> Maintain Clients> Add/Edit/Delete Clients) .

    • If the client does not have report delay days set up, then the number of days in the credit reporting system generation must have passed since the date of referral. You cannot delay relative to date of service from the credit reporting system definitions screen.

    • If the client is a credit type 2 (medical), 180 days must have passed from the date of delinquency. This will be done by default regardless of the client or system delay days settings.



In conclusion, if all of these conditions are met, an account will report to the credit bureaus.
