Are You Tracking Your Credit Score?
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.
