I (initial) agree to credit check. *

I was scared to learn my credit score. I had field bankruptcy after loosing my job in the economic crash. I’m so thankful that I did, the counselor was able to help me put myself on a realistic path to repair my credit.

I was thrilled to learn that my credit union was offering to check my credit score! I wanted to check my credit using one of the free credit reporting sites, but they wanted my credit card information. Thanks for coming through for me!

3 beneficial credit habits:

  • Keep your balance on revolving debt, such as credit cards, below 10% of the limit. If possible, pay the entire amount each month.
  • Always pay installment debts on time i.e., credit cards, auto loans, personal loans, etc.
  • Keep your oldest account open such as a Visa Credit Card. Try not to open unnecessary new accounts.

3 hurtful credit habits:

  • Having a habitual balance of over 50% on the revolving debt, such as a credit card. Even more so, if you have more than one credit card and each balance is above or near the limit.
  • If you miss payments on installment loans, your credit score will go down each time.
  • If you close your oldest revolving debt. By closing your oldest account, you’ve changed a portion of the credit bureau’s equation. They wan to see a long lasting history of well-maintained revolving debt with little to no balance.
