Woman Wearing GlassesMake 2016 the year to stay on top of your credit report. Your credit report—and the credit score calculated based on the information in it—affects many aspects of your life. The obvious is that creditors will check your credit report or credit score before making a decision on a credit application. The information in your credit report can not only affect a yes/no credit decision, but it can also affect the interest rate you will pay. Who wants to pay more in interest? But the days of credit reports being strictly used for credit decisions are long gone. Today, many entities use credit reports to make decision including employers, landlords and insurance companies.
