Free Access to Your Credit Score
How many of us know our credit score? Sure, we hear a lot about its importance to our financial lifestyle, but very few of us regularly check this all important number. Granted, receiving your score is only one part of understanding your creditworthiness, and to fully comprehend our overall situation we must look at these numbers in conjunction with our credit reports. However, it is good to know your score because it provides a base from which you can develop a plan to improve your credit standing. Well, thanks to new federal regulations, you and I will have increased access to our scores beginning July 21, 2011.
