Check Your Credit Report Campaign - Check 3 Times A Year -

3/3, 7/7 and 11/11

Why should I check my credit report? Your credit report is a detailed record of your credit activities from the past 7-10 years. Potential creditors, employers, and landlords use your credit report to estimate how trustworthy you will be.

Federal Law entitles you to 3 FREE credit reports each year. One from each of the 3 credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion.

Credit reports play an important role in many areas of life. They impact one's ability to establish a lower loan interest rate, determine how much they pay for insurance, even impact getting a job and renting a house or apartment. Credit reports also provide a safeguard against identity theft.

Establishing and maintaining credit is an important first step in achieving good credit. Next, monitoring your credit with regular viewing of your credit report and then correcting any problems ensures that information is up to date.

Complete a short survey to get an email reminder to check your credit three times a year:
