Most people need personal finance help.
One of the ways you can help yourself is to check your credit score regularly for errors and changes.
There are a number of different services you can use to check your credit score, I prefer Equifax.
I found a great post here that gives detailed information on how to check your credit score using Equifax.
It has been my experience that most people underestimate the value of a credit score.
Conversely, I think most people don’t realize the potential problems you could run into if your report is incorrect.
It is very realistic to get denied a mortgage based on information that could be incorrect in your report.
Personal finance help begins with you.
You should check your credit report about 2 times per year.
Then, talk to a credit professional to look at strategies to help improve your score.
If your score is good, a credit professional can give you ideas on how you can keep your score high.
Take the time to look at your credit report at least twice a year.
Use a service like Equifax.
