This is a fantastic thing for everyone. For 1, we can all view our credit reports as soon as a year to make certain everything on it is accurate and that there are no credit card and other loans there that we did not authorize. And if we do find something odd on these reports, we can take suitable actions.

I’ve personally claimed my three credit reports and am extremely please with the process. Well, technically only two came through simply because 1 of them did not permit me to get it online at the time and I just did not bother with it. The website was easy to use and delivered what uncle Sam promised.

There is 1 thing missing though. The FICO score. This is a numerical number calculated from the information on your credit reports and is just about the first thing possible creditors will appear at when deciding whether you qualify for a loan at a specific interest rate, or your credit worthiness level.

Typically, this is a separate item you can purchase though any of the three main credit bureaus as nicely through a variety of its resellers. Occasionally it comes bundled with other financial products.

So, when you are searching to check your credit history, be certain to get your three credit reports and your FICO score so you can know the whole picture!

    The credit bureaus record all kinds of credit related activities on your credit report(s), and the negative items such as late payments, default loans, bankruptcy, foreclosure, among other things will lower your calculated credit score.

    From what I know, raising your credit score may take some effort of demonstrating better credit-worthiness for a period of time. If however, a mistake on the credit report is causing your credit score to be low, then you can try to contest that with the bureaus and if you can prove that it was a mistake or due to identity theft, etc., then it’s very likely that you can get the negative items removed, and your credit score will quickly rise. Hope that helps.
