Your Credit Report

Your credit report is one of the most important financial tools there is. It contains specific information, history and details about your financial life and it is used to determine how risky it will be to loan you money. Before you can purchase a house or a car or get a credit card, the information in your report will be scrutinized. A document with this much power to affect your finances needs to be monitored closely and consistently. These articles will show you how and when to review your credit report as well as giving you information for correcting any errors you find.
