How to Get Your Credit Report for Free
Your credit report include information on your address, the number of credit accounts you have, whether you pay your bills on time, and whether you have been sued or filed from bankruptcy. Lenders use it when determining whether to lend to you and at what rates. The United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recommends that you check your credit report at least once a year to prevent identity theft and to make sure your information is being accurately reported.  Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), you are legally entitled to at least one report every 12 months from each of the three major credit bureaus, and the process to obtain them – whether online or by mail – is quick and easy.
