Solutions: Credit Risk


Total household debt increased by $333 billion to reach $15.58 trillion in the fourth quarter of 2021, the largest increase since 2007. Aggregate debt rose $1 trillion during 2021, standing $1.4 trillion higher than at the end of 2019.

New extensions of installment credit were at historically high volumes in 2021 for both mortgages and auto loans. In the fourth quarter, mortgage originations were at $1.03 trillion and newly originated auto loans stood at $181 billion.

Credit card debt is returning to pre-pandemic levels, totaling $860 billion, with 8.3 percent delinquent over 90 days. Student loans stood at $1.58 trillion, an $8 billion decline from Q3 2021, but still 1.9 percent higher than in Q3 2020.

Delinquency rates were very low – 2.7 percent of total debt – having declined through the beginning of the pandemic. Low rates reflected forbearance measures provided by the CARES Act. While a small share of current mortgages became delinquent in the last quarter of 2021, foreclosures remained near zero.
