Do you know your credit score?

Lenders may consider your credit score as a factor in determining your loan rate and eligibility. Do you know your credit score and the factors affecting it?
Calculating your Credit Score

The following factors are taken into account when calculating your credit score:
    • Your payment history
    • The amount you owe
    • The length of your credit history
    • The types of credit you use
    • and any recently acquired credit
Did you know, that repeated credit checks in a short period (e.g. applying for several credit cards or loans at once) can often have a negative effect on your credit score?
Credit Score Ratings

Credit reporting agencies may present your credit score in a number of ways:
    • Scale of 1-9, where 1 is paid in full on time and 9 is never paid
    • Use a payment chart
    • A payment scale
Checking your credit score and report yourself once or twice a year on the Equifax site (charges apply) can help you know your eligibility and spot early signs of identity theft and inaccuracies.
