What is my credit score?

What is my credit score?

The answer to this question is an important one and one you should always be aware of. In fact, lenders will want to know too. This is especially true when it comes time to apply for a loan or credit card. Lenders pull from a credit bureau such as TransUnion, Equifax or Experian to determine if you are qualified or if you are a risky candidate for credit. It’s important to always monitor your standing and improve it in any way you can. It could make the difference between receiving or being declined for a house mortgage, auto loan, boat loan, etc. It also helps to determine what your interest rate will be on loans and credit accounts. Your credit score is a single number that can cost or save you a great deal of money in your lifetime.
