Download your credit reports and check for unauthorized accounts and errors at https://www.annualcreditreport.com. We recommend checking one report from one of the three major credit bureaus every four months throughout the year to keep yourself informed of any changes.
Freeze Your Credit
Placing a freeze on your credit file prevents new lines of credit from being opened without your direct permission. Place, lift or delete a freeze at any time at no charge; just make sure to keep your PIN in a safe place. It’s also a good idea to freeze your children’s credit to protect against child identity theft.Go to main navigation
