Credit Reporting Bureaus:





NOTE: The three main credit reporting agencies are Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. When you’re applying for credit or when you are trying to rent a property or applying for a job, someone checks your credit history. If you have ever been denied credit, a denial letter will state which credit reporting bureau was used for the credit check. You are legally entitled to a free credit report from the reporting bureau used if you are ever denied credit. Your credit report cannot be viewed by anyone who does not have legitimate need to view it.

You can also request a copy of your report from the other two bureaus for only $8 per copy. Checking all three bureaus is important. You may find that your credit report contained inaccurate information. In that case, you can correct the information and contact the lender for reconsideration of your credit application. It's important for you to check your credit report regularly so that you can correct any errors that might have accidentally crept in over time. Plus, regular checks of your credit report can also help spot IdentityTheft.

Before ordering your credit reports make sure to check the state specific information on the credit reporting websites. Some states, such as Maryland, require that each credit reporting bureau offer one free credit report per year to Maryland residents. Other states mandate lower fees for credit reports. You could find out that you are entitled to free or reduced rate credit reports.
