The Components of Credit Scores

  • 1. The Components of Credit Scores BY RICHARD THRIPP APRIL 27, 2016 PRESENTED IN FULFILLMENT OF: TOASTMASTERS ADVANCED COMMUNICATION SERIES TECHNICAL PRESENTATIONS PROJECT 1: THE TECHNICAL BRIEFING
  • 2. What are Credit Scores?
  • 3. What are credit scores? • Scores based on your credit reports • Used when considering you for new credit cards, mortgages, and auto loans • A factor in decisions by some employers, landlords, banks, and auto insurance companies
  • 4. Who maintains credit reports? • Three credit bureaus: • Equifax • Experian • TransUnion • Reports and FICO scores may differ between bureaus
  • 5. What is a FICO score? • A credit scoring model developed in 1989 by Fair, Isaac, & Co. • Calculated from credit report(s) • Range: 300–850; 700+ is “good” • Typically cannot be obtained for free
  • 7. Payment History 35% Utilization 30% Average Age of Accounts 15% Mix of Credit Types 10% New Credit 10% COMPONENTS OF FICO CREDIT SCORES What does this mean? Most important: Payment History and Utilization—65% Don’t miss payments! Rule of thumb: use less than 30% of your available credit lines.
  • 8. Payment History—35% • Includes personal credit cards, mortgages, auto loans, and student loans • Excludes all other bills unless delinquent and referred to collections • Paying just the minimum payment on a credit card is exactly the same as paying in full for the purposes of this component • Being more than 90 days late is very bad
  • 9. Utilization—30% • How much of your credit lines are you using? • Lower utilization (below 30%) = better • Only relevant to credit cards • Usually based on statement balances • High impact and can change frequently • Looks at total credit usage and individual credit lines, to some extent
  • 10. Average Age of Accounts—15% • Includes your oldest account and the average (mean) age of all your accounts • Most relevant to credit cards • Older = better • Don’t cancel credit cards if no annual fee

New Credit—10% • “Hard” credit inquiries occur when you are applying for credit • Creditors might inquire at 1–3 bureau(s) • These inquiries mildly hurt your scores for about 6 months and disappear after 2 years • Avoid applying for credit cards for 6–12 months before getting/refinancing a mortgage
