FAQs

A credit score is the number lenders use to assess your credit worthiness. It’s based on information in your credit report, such as your payment history, the amount of debt you have, and the length of your credit history. Your credit score is important because it can impact rates and terms on loans, credit cards, housing, and even jobs available to you. A credit score can also play a role in determining insurance rates, which plays a part in how much money you can save.

Your credit score is tied directly to the financial decisions you make, such as how much debt you have, how long you’ve had credit, and how often you made payments on time. These decisions help lenders evaluate whether to lend you money or not.

 

A credit score ranges from 300 to 850. A higher credit score means you are a lower risk to lenders and are more likely to be approved for loans and credit cards with lower interest rates. A lower credit score means you could have a more challenging time borrowing money, or only be approved for loans with higher interest rates.
