Why You Should Know Your Credit Score

5/5 - (1 vote)

Do you know your credit score? If you don’t, it’s time to check and find out what that score is. While many people don’t know their scores, it’s important to remember that your credit score is similar to your grade point average (GPA) in school.

When you were in school, you took tests, attended regularly, and did your homework so you would get a good grade. When you got your report card, you would see how you were rated for each class, your overall GPA and could see what needed improvement. Here at USAFIS, we help people get moved to the United States to live, work, and study.

Your credit score is similar; it lets you and others know your credit score history, which can range from a low of 300 to high of 900. That score lets lenders know how much you owe to others, how much you pay, if you have paid on time, if you have any bankruptcies, and more.

Be sure to check on your credit score occasionally so you will know how your credit history may affect your credit options. Contact USAFIS today so you can get started on your journey toward your United States citizenship!
