A credit score is a rating used by a lender to help determine whether you qualify for a particular credit card, loan, or service. Based on information in your credit file, the credit reporting company analyzes your information using a complex mathematical model to yield your credit score. Most credit scores estimate the risk a company incurs by lending you money or providing you with a service - specifically, the likelihood that you'll fail to make payments in the next two to three years. The higher the score, the less risk you represent. Your score is calculated by a mathematical equation that evaluates many types of information found in the credit file. What is a Credit Score?
Factors That Affect a Credit Score What is a Credit Score? PAST PAYMENT PERFORMANCE – 35% The fewer late payments, judgments, liens or collections the better. The more recent late payments worsen your credit score. CREDIT UTILIZATION – 30% Low balances on several cards is worse than high balances on a few cards. Balance should be at or below 30% of your available credit. CREDIT HISTORY – 15% The longer that accounts have been open and in good standing, the better. Avoid ‘credit surfing.’ Opening new accounts and closing others will negatively impact a score. TYPES OF CREDIT IN USE – 10% Finance company accounts score lower than traditional banking or retail accounts. Deferred payment options funded by finance companies impact the score accordingly. INQUIRIES – 10% Looking for new credit over a short period of time can be indicative of higher risk. Promotional or administrative inquiries (i.e. credit grantor updates) will show on the report but do not affect the credit score.
