If you want to improve your FICO credit score, you absolutely must monitor your credit files. Fortunately, the credit bureaus Equifax, Experian, and Trans Union are making it easier for you to do just that.
See their joint press release below:
The three nationwide credit reporting agencies – Equifax® (NYSE:EFX), Experian (LON:EXPN) and TransUnion (NYSE:TRU) – are taking joint action to continue offering free weekly credit reports to consumers in the United States through the end of 2023. This benefit will help consumers manage their financial health during a period of rising inflation and unprecedented economic uncertainty coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The companies’ CEOs provided a joint statement on the decision to extend free weekly credit reports through 2023. “The rising cost of living in the wake of COVID-19 has created economic consequences felt by many Americans,” said Mark W. Begor, CEO Equifax; Brian Cassin, CEO Experian; and Chris Cartwright, CEO TransUnion. “Our industry is committed to helping people better position themselves for strong financial futures. Credit reports play an important role in financial health, and providing weekly reports for consumers at no charge is another way that we can support financial education and stability for people across the U.S. at this critical time.”
Consumer credit reports are a factual record of credit activity and payment history used by lenders, creditors, service providers and other businesses to extend financial opportunities and other offers to people. Consumers can access their free weekly credit reports from each of the three credit reporting agencies at www.annualcreditreport.com. Consumers should review all items appearing in each section of their credit reports. If an error is identified, consumers should contact the credit reporting agency immediately to correct that information.
