Your credit score can make the difference between being able to purchase a home with a mortgage or having to continue renting. It can drastically affect the interest rate you pay on car and home loans. Poor credit history could result in a large deposit in order to open an account with the electric company or to sign a new lease. It could even mean the loss of job opportunities: In today’s competitive job market, many employers will check your credit before hiring you. Bad credit is often seen as a lack of responsibility, honesty, or financial management skills. Lisa Frankenberger of Consumer Credit Counseling Services will discuss what information is contained in your credit report and what exactly determines your credit score. She will also cover just why your credit report and score is so important.
