Does Blend require or request 2 years employment?

When a borrower completes an app in Blend, does it require or request two years worth of employment? 

We are used to getting the full 2 years of employment, but this week have started to receive aps with just their current employer and many that have been in that job for a month or two. 

I realize the borrower has the option to put two years, but want to know if it requests two years or has a pop-up saying there is less than two years, etc?

I believe it suggests it, from what I remember I can say I have no employment or put less in and then just skip but I have not done this in a while so double check.  I would test it by going in as a borrower and trying to put in an app with less than 2 years and see if you can get around it and how.

Hi @Andrew ,

It does not require it by default, but Blend offers the ability to require a specific length of employment history (in months) with an additional configuration.

Thank you for the information Chelsea. I appreciate it. 

I believe we have the 24 months configured on our instance for employment history.  Is that configuration requires a the 24 months from current date or that can be a total of 24 months from the last x number of years?

Hi @ronierodriguez! Your environment is configured for a 24 month employment history requirement and it applies from current date. There isn’t an option to set it from the last X number of years.
