Improve Your Credit Score, Improve Your Life

March is Credit Education Month, so it's probably a good time to ask yourself: how much do you really know about your credit score? When asked in a 2006 Consumer Action study, over 27% of Americans said they had never even checked their credit. What's worse is that a recent FTC report revealed that about 25% of American consumers have at least one error on their credit report that could negatively affect their score. Credit reports may not be sensational or exciting, but they're relevant to anyone who has ever applied for a loan, insurance, apartment rental, or credit card. In other words, they're relevant to pretty much everyone. Because credit scores can have such a major impact on your financial health, awareness and education around credit scores is particularly important. This infographic helps you to understand the ins and outs of credit reports in a visually compelling way! In celebration of Credit Education Month, PeopleSmart has put together an informative graphic to help highlight the importance of being both aware and educated about your credit. Please share this with your friends and family or on Facebook and Twitter to help educate others on the importance of credit education.
