One in five people have an error on at least one of their credit reports according to a study conducted by the Federal Trade Commission. When is the last time you checked your free credit report? Check your credit from once a year to once a week. You can access your credit report from each credit reporting agency – Equifax, Experian, TransUnion@annualcreditreport.com. Be sure to check your credit and keep errors off your account. Especially if you are postponing bills, using more credit than usual, applying for loans.
