Credit Report

It's a new year, pull a copy of your credit report to see what is on it. You are allowed 1 free report from each agency per year. TansUnion, Experian and Equifax. You can request from just one, then in a few months do it again from one of the other agencies. It is always good to know what is on it.

Id like to add that it is a good idea for most people to lock their credit reports as well! While it will make it difficult to take out new lines of credit, it also makes it nearly impossible for someone else to do it in your name! I believe it is now free as well

Yes, locking your report is completely free and should be done.

How do you lock your credit report, and what are the advantages of doing that?

Thanks.

To lock your credit reports, you must contact all three of credit bureaus Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. You will need to supply information to ensure you are who you are then request that they freeze you credit reports

I need to pull mine again. When I refinanced my mortgage a few years ago my FICO dropped 100 points which made no sense at all. I cashed out a bit in order to reduce other revolving debt. I thought my FICO score would have gone up instead.

I didn't know you could do that, thank you.
