Why Does My Credit Score Matter?

One day--if not already--you will need a loan. Your credit score is used to determine whether or not you are capable of making your loan payments. Your credit score shows how reliable you are to creditors. 

Credit Scores are Based on These Factors

  • Your payment history
  • The amount of debt you have
  • How long your credit accounts have been in use
  • The credit you have
  • How often you use credit

The better your credit score, the more likely you are to receive a loan.
