Credit Reports


A free credit report will identify all of your current open accounts and may identify any problems or fraudulent activity. The only official government-supported and truly free credit report website is at AnnualCreditReport.com. This website allows you to view your credit report, without any fee, once yearly from each of the three largest credit bureaus. If you do not want to submit the request online, you can mail the form located at AnnualCreditReport.com

Credit Reports-Minor


Minor credit reporting agencies are not represented on annualcreditreport.com. You will need to visit each service if you would like a copy of their profile of your credit. This is not difficult, but it can be time consuming. At the time of this writing, there are nine additional agencies which are being considered during your application for credit (or someone else pretending to be you). I believe you should identify the data included within each and correct any errors which could impact your overall credit profile. In a moment, we will freeze all of these options. While the following services do not all have access to the data within the “major” bureaus, the top three (Equifax, Experian, and Transunion) often maintain access to each of these. The following should help identify the most appropriate way to retrieve and scrutinize your data from each.
