Your credit report and credit score play a huge role in your ability to borrow.
Consumer advocates have also long encouraged individuals to monitor their credit reports.
One free credit report per year is available to you through a combined effort of the three national credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian and TransUnion). Free reports are available through a dedicated web site, annualcreditreport.com.
You can also order your free credit report by telephone at 877-322-8228 or by mail - download the form here.
Important reminder: Your free credit report does not include your credit score. Your credit score is typically available for a fee.
