Credit Report Summary
Your name, address and employment information are used to identify you and can be found in this section. This information has been collected by the credit bureau from your lenders and other public resources. Also, in this area you will see an overview of the number accounts you have and their current status.
These are your credit accounts. Lenders report on each account you have established with them and details of the type of account (credit card, auto loan, mortgage, etc), open date, your credit limit or loan amount, the account status and balance, utilization percentage or percentage paid off and your payment history.
An inquiry is recorded whenever your credit report is “pulled” by another party, such as a financial institution, lender, credit card company, service provider, landlord, or insurer. Credit inquiries remain on your credit report for up to 2 years, and each can temporarily result in a slight dip in your overall credit standing.
Credit bureaus collect public record information from state and county courts, and information on overdue debt from collection agencies. Public records include bankruptcies, foreclosures, suits, wage attachments, liens and judgments which all can be found in this section. These items may have a negative impact on your credit if not handled appropriately.
What if I see something that’s inaccurate?
If you find any inaccuracies in your report, it is fast and easy to dispute them with TransUnion by clicking on the “Dispute Report” button inside the SavvyMoney Credit Report.
