Free Monthly Credit Score

.

.

Your credit score is used by companies and organizations for a variety of reasons: to verify your validity (if you pay your bills on time so they can decide the potential risk factor for a large purchase you want to make, to decide what interest rate to charge if you are opening a credit account, etc.). When you request your annual credit report, you can also purchase your credit score.

One way to be sure that your identity has not been compromised is to review your credit report from the three major credit reporting agencies annually. Look for incorrect information, wrong addresses, erroneous entries that do not belong to you, credit cards that you do not – nor have ever – owned, mysterious entries. Although you can check things out in your annual credit report, if your identity has been stolen, waiting for a year will be too late.

Many credit card companies are finally starting to provide your credit score with your monthly statement. However, I still prefer to err on the side of caution and therefore, I continue to check my credit score monthly. Therefore, I log onto Credit Karma every month. Since it is a FREE website, it only costs me a minute to check what my credit score is with them.  They do not use the same calculation that the three major credit reporting agencies do; however, it still is a nice way to double check.

This is another task reminder that I set for myself with the contact information and website URL included so when my task reminder pops up, all I need to do is to click on the URL. I enter the credit score for that month in the task reminder and re-set it for the next month.

.

TASK: Register with Credit Karma and set a recurring task reminder for each month so that you remember to request your FREE credit score.
