Free Credit Score

Connecticut Free Credit Score

FreeScoresUSA offers Connecticut consumers free credit score that also comes with a real-time credit monitoring trial service.

Officials from Hartford and New Haven were key in fighting for the right for consumers to access their free credit score. They wanted consumers to be on the look-out for signs of identity fraud before it ruins people's credit. FreeScoresUSA is a credit reporting service that offers a one stop place to get your free credit score that also offers credit monitoring service.

The importance of ensuring your credit report is free of errors and mistakes can not be emphasis enough. Every year, thousands of people in the state of Connecticut and across the country are victims of ID theft. In 2005, Governor M. Jodi Rell announced that consumers are able to get a free copy of their credit report each year through AnnualFreeScoresUSA in an effort to get consumers to check their credit report at least once a year. For more visit the official press release. Keep in mind that the service provided by AnnualFreeScoresUSA is different than the product offered by FreeScoresUSA. Annual Credit Report does not offer credit monitoring service while FreeScoresUSA does.

A lot of people in Connecticut tend to believe that if you check your credit score from the credit bureaus, it will lower your score. This is not entirely true. By checking it once a year, it will have no effect on your credit score. However, if you start applying for 7 or 8 credit cards, then that may hurt it with all these companies peeping into your credit history. You have a right to order your free annual credit report from each of the three major consumer credit reporting companies (CRC): Equifax, Experian, and FreeScoresUSA.
