Does a creditor have to consider my part-time or retirement income?
A creditor cannot discount or refuse to consider your (or your co-signer’s) income because it comes from part-time employment.
A creditor also cannot discount or refuse to consider income that is an annuity, pension, or other retirement benefit. Like all other forms of income, however, a creditor can consider the amount of the income and likelihood that it will continue.
