How to Increase Your Credit Score
by Harrine Freeman




Credit scores are used to determine: if you will be hired for a job, approval for credit, interest rates, terms and conditions, down payment costs, rates for medical and other insurance coverage, approval for cable and internet service and more.

A credit score ranges from 300-850 with 850 being the highest score and 300 being the lowest core. A good credit score is 700 or above. Here are 6 things you can do to increase credit score:



1.    Review. Review your credit reports at least once a year at:  www.annualcreditreport.com  and  fix any errors on your credit reports.

2.    Balances. Keep credit card balances at 20% or less of the credit limit.

3.    New Accounts. Don’t open more than one new account every 2 years.

4.    Payments. Pay all your bills on time. Get current on any late accounts.

5.    Credit. If you have bad credit open a secured credit card to help reestablish your credit history.
