Build Your Credit
Your credit is a picture of your financial history and how you manage your financial commitments. Lenders, employers, and even potential romantic partners rely on your credit to help them learn more about you.
So what does your credit say about you?
Build the best credit to…
• Access cash or loans when you need it
• Borrow more money and pay lower interest
• Remain competitive in the job market
• Protect yourself from identity theft
• … And more!
Avoid Bad Credit
Bad credit can be devastating. It can restrict your availability to money, reducing your housing and transportation options; it can make you less competitive in the workplace; it can even result in more money spent on interest on any loans you might need.
Bad credit can be caused by several issues. For example, poor credit habits can lead to unhealthy credit. But that’s not all. There are several reasons why you might have bad credit and not even realize it, including errors on your credit reports or even identity theft.
Avoid bad credit by regularly pulling your credit reports and reviewing them – at least twice a year. And make sure you are using your credit cards and paying them on time. This is a small investment of time and effort that reaps big rewards. Remember: Credit can decline quickly. It’s easier to maintain good credit and avoid bad credit than it is to rebuild your credit once it has declined.
