Your Money, Your Goals: Understanding Credit Reports and Scores


Some people say credit reports don't matter to them, because they always use cash and don't plan to buy a home.  Even if you don't plan on buying a home right now, businesses and people use your credit score to make decisions about you:

  • a bank or store will use your score to determine whether or not to give you a credit card
  • to decide what your interest rate will be
  • a landlord can pull your score to determine whether or not your application is approved
  • your insurance rate may be determined by your credit score
  • potential employers in some fields will use a special version of your credit report to determine clearance

Join us at the OFE for Your Money, Your Goals to learn about the components of a credit report.  July's focus will be understanding your credit score. Light refreshments will be served.  

College Kids parents are encouraged to attend this evening series and will receive a $5 deposit into their child's account for each class attended.  For more information about the series, please contact Erin at 314-612-1686.
