Not as on track with your finances as you would like?
March is National Credit Education Month. This is a great time to manage your finances and get on top of your incomings and outgoings, and any credit you might have. Throughout the month, we will share with you some basic tips and resources to keep track of your credit score.
Get a copy of your credit report - You can request a free copy of your credit report from each of the three major credit bureaus — Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion once every 12 months, as well as under certain other circumstances.
Know your credit score - Your credit scores are calculated based on the information in your credit report. It plays more of a role in your financial life than you might think, so it's important not to be in the dark.
Give complete and accurate ID on your credit applications - Your credit history is a vital piece of information that is important to your overall financial wellbeing. A consistent identification helps you set up your credit history.
