Track Your Credit Score

Your credit score may be one of the most important numbers connected to your name. That's because your credit score helps determine your ability to get credit for the things you want, whether it's a new home, starting up a business or college for your kids. Companies that extend credit use your score to help determine what kind of loan to give you and to set the interest rate. The higher your credit score, the better interest rates you are likely to get. It's important to take the time to learn about your credit and the steps you can take to help you understand your credit score.

Credit Basics: Why Know Your Credit Score?

Your credit score is a numerical value that credit lenders, insurance agents and even employers and landlords, use to assess your level of credit risk. A high credit score means you are likely to be a low credit risk, while a lower score increases your risk profile. Credit lenders understand this, and the lower the credit score, the higher they must make interest rates in order to pay for all the people in that credit risk group that default. And that's important to remember, since even a basic loan with a better interest rate could wind up saving you thousands of dollars over the life of the loan.
