What is credit and why it is important?

What’s the big deal about credit scores? How do I get my credit score? What impact does my credit score have on my financial wellness? This informative session will provide an in-depth discussion of how to obtain your credit report, an understanding how to read your credit report, and how your credit report will be viewed by lenders, credit card companies, employers, insurance providers, and housing rental agencies

Learn how information is transmitted to the three credit bureaus, the importance of accurate information and what actions are necessary to dispute and correct inaccurate information.  Listen to valuable tips about precautions and preventative actions against identity theft and fraud.  Historical credit and information detailed on your credit report tells a story about you.
