Since the financial collapse of 2009 and other conditions that affect the financial industry, it is important to establish and maintain a good credit score/report. The following is a list of companies or agencies that can review your credit report:

  • Lenders
  • Insurance companies
  • Landlords seeking a credit check for renters
  • Credit card companies
  • Companies where you are seeking employment (only with your written consent)
  • Organizations considering your application for a government license or benefit (if the agency is required to consider your financial status)
  • State or local child support enforcement agencies
  • Government agencies (usually can only look at your name, address, former addresses, and current and former employers)
  • Other organizations you've initiated business with

Topics Include: 1) How to obtain/interpret your credit report; 2) Legally correct your credit score without paying ; 3) Tips to avoid identity theft, credit fraud & other popular scams; 4) How inquiries affect your score; 5) How long bankruptcies and collections stays on your report; 6) How is your score calculated; and 7) The effects of debt to income.
