Risk-Based Pricing Solutions

Comply with the FACT Act Risk-Based Pricing Rule

The Risk-Based Pricing Rule went into effect January 1, 2011.

According to the Rule, any company that uses a credit report or score in connection with a credit decision must notify a consumer when granting credit on "material terms that are materially less favorable than the most favorable terms available to a substantial proportion of consumers."

Efficiently integrate TransUnion solutions in your exception notice processes

The Risk-Based Pricing Rule allows lenders to deliver an “exception notice” in lieu of the risk-based pricing notice. TransUnion has developed two solutions that fully support the model form exception notice in the Rule.

Score Percentile Ranking

Produce the model form exception notice without the added time and expense of maintaining multiple score distribution graphs or creating the statement from multiple score interval tables.

Available as an add-on to the online credit report, the score percentile ranking allows you to populate the percentage directly in the statement

  • For example: "Your credit score ranks higher than [X percentage] of U.S. consumers"

Available on the following scores:

  • FICO® Classic 08
  • FICO® Classic 04
  • FICO® Classic 98
  • FICO® Classic 95
  • FICO® Auto 08
  • FICO® Auto 04
  • VantageScore®

Score Distribution Graphs and Score Interval Tables

Populate the score comparison section of the exception notice for an easy-to-read, consumer-friendly communication.

Score Distribution Graph

Score Interval Table

  • Available on all active, generic score models
  • Graphs and tables will be updated as necessary, but no less than every two years
  • Obtain the graphs and tables from the TransUnion Client Technical Services website, your sales representative, or by calling 866-922-2100
