What can I do to improve my credit score?
- Pay all bills on time — Just one or two late payment(s) can adversely impact your score.
- Keep balances low on credit cards and other revolving credit products.
- Apply for and open new credit accounts only as needed.
- Review your credit report from the three major credit reporting agencies (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion) and contact them if you believe that your credit report contains inaccuracies.
