Thanks for the replies. Seeing that a second credit agency had a much higher score for her, I'm not as worried that she will not be able to get credit on her own.

You may be right re the mortgage but it is showing up on her credit report with a 0 balance.

Maybe Chase declined for a different reason than the credit score. For her income, we entered an amount based on expected investment income (interest, divs) and capital gains from our joint account. Not sure that is correct but there were no instructions and the question did not specify that only earned income should be included.
