It’s officially autumn and to many of us, it means “fall cleaning.”
It’s also a good time to perform financial housekeeping tasks, including reviewing your credit report and disputing any incorrect information.
To do so, visit www.annualcreditreport.com. Register on the site and obtain your credit report from each of the three bureaus.
If you discover incorrect information, dispute it. The bureaus will investigate and make changes as instructed by the creditors.
There is no cost to you, and you can rest assured that your financial “snapshot” is updated!
