Time is necessary before credit score can be calculated

Dear Experian, My husband and I recently purchased a used car. He makes an annual income of $63,000 and I am a full-time, unemployed student. Because he had zero credit and I had student loans on creating a small credit score, we were only able to sign jointly for the car. He was told being the co-signer would be a great way to start earning credit. He's tried to get a credit card but continues to be denied for lack of credit. We've had the car now for four months and all payments have been on-time. We just ran his credit looking at refinancing the car to a lower interest rate and the account is there, but he still does not have a credit score. Our bank suggested contacting you to see how long it takes before he will begin earning a credit score. - CJF

No credit history cause for declination, not lack of credit score

Dear Experian, I moved to the U.S. two years ago and have since applied three times for a department store card. Requests got denied because I apparently didn't have a credit score. I also applied for a secured credit card which got approved, and I am slowly starting to build my credit score. Unfortunately, I already have four hard requests. How can I remove older requests that were denied due to the missing credit score? - MPC

Credit history no longer exists

Dear Experian, I have been living debt free for over 10 years. I had credit at one time and have never had any problems with late or missed payments. I have always had a good job. It seems that my name and existence has been deleted from the credit reporting system. Is there a way for me to at least put the fact that I exist back into the system before making an application for credit? - CRZ
