Frequently Asked Questions

What information do I need to apply?

To complete an application, you'll be asked to provide your personal information such as name, address, Social Security number, employment information, income, email address and your vehicle make, model, trim and the details of your requested financing. If you're an existing Chase customer the information stored in your Chase profile will pre-fill upon signing in. Keep in mind we may ask for additional information based on your auto finance application.

What are the credit requirements to apply?

We use a number of factors when making credit decisions, including the information you provide in your application and the information in your credit bureau report.

What should I do if I have a credit freeze?

If you have a credit freeze, you will need to temporarily lift or permanently remove your security freeze by contacting all three credit bureaus (Equifax, TransUnion and Experian) before you submit an application.

How do I apply for auto financing for a business?

What if I don't know exactly how much money I need to borrow?

Your exact amount may change as you work out the details with your dealer. It's best to be as accurate as possible because changes can affect your approval and terms. Your dealer can update the final amount once you agree on a final price.

What's the difference between applying for financing at a dealer and applying directly with Chase?

If you apply for financing directly with us, only Chase will receive your application. If you apply at a dealer, they may send your application to multiple lenders.

Do I have to apply for credit again when I get to my dealer?

When you apply with us, your dealer will have the approval details so there's no need to re-apply.

If you approve my application, am I obligated to finance with Chase?

You don't have to finance with Chase, even if we approve your application. However, if you want to take advantage of this offer, contact your dealer.

What is the interest rate for my new car?

Our Auto Finance Calculator provides estimated rates and monthly payments.

You'll need to submit an application to determine your credit decision and Annual Percentage Rate (APR). If you've already applied, go to and sign in or contact your dealer to determine your interest rate.
