Credit - money that a bank or business will allow a person to use and then pay back in the future (Britannica Dictionary 2024)


Someone with good credit health will not only have an easier time obtaining loans, credit cards, and lines of credit, they’re also more likely to have lower interest rates which means more money saved. Having “good” or “bad” credit is a reflection of a person’s overall credit health. Credit health is impacted by various factors, including:

• Payment history

• FICO® Score

• Debt size
• Income

• Types of credit

• Length of credit history

 

The first step to building strong credit and a high credit score is knowing what’s in your credit report. A “Review of Credit” will help you determine what financial behaviors you should be taking to rebuild, improve, or maintain your creditworthiness. Committed to the financial wellness of the community, Sunmark Credit Union offers members a free Review of Credit which should be done at least once a year. 

 

Understanding the different components of your credit report can feel overwhelming, but Sunmark’s knowledgeable staff members will explain each item and provide valuable information such as:

• Your credit score

• Payment history

• Loan balances

• Types of credit (revolving, installment, or service)

• Number of open accounts in your name
 

Knowing what your credit is comprised of can help prevent errors that may lead to a lower credit score (and higher rates on loans) and may even protect you against identity theft. Sunmark Credit Union’s representatives have the training and experience needed to help guide you with:

• Determining which loans or credit cards could be consolidated into a lower rate 

• Identifying ways to pay down debt

• Methods to building credit over time

• Strategies for increasing your credit score
