Your credit score is very important; it affects the interest rate you pay on loans, insurance rates, apartment leases and even job opportunities.
Check your credit score in online banking—if you don’t see your score, click on the “services” tab and enroll. Easy!
Also, the three credit bureaus will provide you a free credit report once a year. It is a great opportunity to make sure the information is all accurate. You can also “freeze” your credit scores with the bureaus so that no one can run a credit report on you (remember to unfreeze if you are applying for credit, of course!)
