Check your credit score
Your credit score is more than just a number.
Your credit score is far more important than you think.
A credit score is a number between 300 and 900 that banks and lenders look at to determine whether to approve you for a car loan, mortgage, credit cards, rental lease for an apartment and other credit applications. It’s important that you understand how to access your score to help you remain in control of your overall financial health.
Your credit score is primarily calculated by the credit reporting agencies based on the information found in your credit report. A credit report is a detailed breakdown of your financial history that includes personal information about you, as well as details about your credit products and payment history.
