What’s in your credit report?

first_imgThe Fair Credit Reporting Act entitles everyone to one free credit report every year from each of the three nationwide credit bureaus, but many consumers don’t take advantage of it.People tend to request copies of their credit report if they are planning a major upcoming life event, like buying a house, or if they are a victim of identity theft. However, most of the time, a credit report tends to be out of sight, out of mind.Experts say that is a mistake. Here’s why: your credit report details how you handle credit. That information is then used to determine your credit score. Your credit score – a three-digit number – is designed to help lenders figure out how big of a risk it would be to lend you money.If you want to borrow money and get a fair interest rate that reflects your true risk profile, it’s worth taking the time, at least once a year, to review your credit report.Here are few things you need to know about credit reports:Annualcreditreport.com is the only authorized website for the free annual credit report that you are guaranteed by law. You can use the site to request your Experian, Equifax and TransUnion credit reports online. (Those are the three major credit bureaus that lenders use to search your credit score.) Different lenders report to different credit bureaus, so it’s important to pull your reports from all three. The process to request the reports is as simple as filling out a form online, picking the reports you want and verifying your identity. Be prepared to provide your name, address, social security number, date of birth and other information.Credit reports include four sections:Identifying information: This is where you will find your name, social security number, current and former addresses, phone number and other personal information.Credit history:This is your complete borrowing history, including every loan you’ve ever had and whether you paid on time. You’ll also find information such as creditor names, account activity, account number, credit limit, minimum monthly payment and current balance.Public Records: This is where negative credit information like bankruptcies, liens and court judgments are listed. Negative information can remain on your report for up to seven years, so keep this section as clean as possible.Inquiries: This is triggered when your credit report is pulled. Inquiries fall into two categories: Hard and soft. Hard inquiries are when potential lenders pull your report when you apply for a loan. They can temporarily lower your credit score by up to five points. Soft inquiries are when a person or company checks your report as part of a background check. Soft inquiries don’t affect your credit at all, so don’t worry about frequently checking your own credit reports. 40SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Myriam DiGiovanni After writing for Credit Union Times and The Financial Brand, Myriam DiGiovanni covers financial literacy for FinancialFeed.

Callard defends Burgess display

first_img “We scored two tries and nilled them on tries, which was very impressive. The players deserve all the credit. “We fell too many times on the scrum, but we showed great composure and discipline outside of that.” Sean O’Brien made a successful return from shoulder surgery and Ireland must now decide whether he is ready for their Six Nations opener against Italy in Rome next week. “I got 50 minutes under my belt and I was just happy to be out there. Ideally I’d like more game time before Italy, but there aren’t any more opportunities,” O’Brien said. “I’d usually get two or three games under my belt but with the short window that’s not possible. “There was no reaction on the shoulder and that will give me confidence. I took a few good hits so I’m happy enough.” England Saxons coach Jon Callard defended Sam Burgess after his disappointing representative union debut in the 18-9 victory over Ireland Wolfhounds in Cork. “Sam has had a great week for us, but unfortunately didn’t have the ball on the front foot and probably tried to force a couple of things,” Callard said. “He made a lovely little break and offload, which is what his strength is, but we just couldn’t get him into the game at set-piece. “But he was influential on the shape we had in attack. He pulled defenders out with his running, which created space out wide. “What he did with the ball in hand wasn’t there to see, but he did a lot of good stuff without the ball. “Sam has only had a session and a half in the England set up, but he created space for others and that’s what the game is about.” Fly-half Henry Slade and wing Christian Wade scored tries in a hard-fought win against a strong Wolfhounds team, but it was a flawed performance at Irish Independent Park with the set-piece particularly weak. “(England head coach) Stuart Lancaster talked to the squad on Monday and told the players he expected them to win and expected them to be hurting that they’ve been left out of the senior squad,” Callard said. “I’m very proud of our attacking rugby. The players gave everything against a good Irish side. Burgess produced several conspicuous mistakes in the first half before becoming a peripheral figure after the interval, apart from another brief error-ridden spell, and on this evidence has little chance of being involved in the RBS 6 Nations. Callard chose to praise the powerful 26-year-old’s work off the ball with his union apprenticeship still numbering only eight games. Press Associationlast_img read more
