How do I order my credit score, and what does it cost?
You'll receive your credit score when you request your free annual credit report from www.annualcreditreport.com or from any of the "big three" credit reporting agencies.
The people at your credit union also may be able to provide you with your score and discuss it in relation to your overall credit picture.
Watch out! … If you search for "credit score" on the Internet, a lot of sites will pop up. Some are reputable, but many are not. Some sell packages of credit products that include not only credit scores but credit reports, credit monitoring services, and identity theft insurance. It’s possible that some searches may even lead you to scam artists who try to steal your personal information, such as your Social Security number and other identifying information. Stick with reputable sites such as the credit reporting agencies, Experian, transunion, and Equifax.
