3 reasons to check your credit report
You should review your credit report from time to time in order to:
- Watch for suspicious activity, such as credit card accounts you didn’t open.
- Check for inaccuracies, such as outstanding loans that have been paid off.
- Find out how prospective lenders or employers see you.
You should immediately report incorrect or suspicious items to the credit bureau and the financial institution in question. Learn how to get your credit report.
