Are You Tracking Your Credit Score?

Credit Report Widget

One of the most important things when it comes to finances is your credit score. It determines whether a financial will lend money to you and what rate you’ll get on a loan. Sometimes, it can even be used by landlords checking on new tenants or employers looking at applicants.

If you want a great credit score, you’ve likely heard of the necessary steps: pay bills on time, keep your credit card balances low, don’t close out old credit cards, etc., but how do you know that’s working if you’re not checking your score regularly?

Educators Credit Union has an easy fix: the Credit Report Widget powered by SavvyMoney®! Here’s how it works:

  • Log into Online Banking or Mobile Banking.
  • Open the Credit Report Widget from your menu.
  • Click the button to enroll.

It’s that easy! Once you’re in, you’ll get daily credit score updates. The Credit Report Widget also gives you tips on how to improve or maintain your score, financial articles on managing your money, and opportunities to lower your interest rate and save money on existing loans.

It’s a fantastic tool that can go a long way in helping you crank that credit score up. Visit the Credit Report Widget page of our website for more info.
