Credit Score basics

What is a Credit Score?

A Credit Score is a number lenders use to help decide how likely it is that they will be repaid on time if they give a person a loan or a credit card. Your FICO Score 8 ranges from 300 to 850 and is based on calculated factors from information in your credit report.

Why does a Credit Score matter?

Credit Scores represent the risk that lenders use in the repayment of consumer debt. Based on your risk level, a Credit Score can help determine if you qualify for a loan and mean the difference in hundreds or thousands in savings based on the interest rate offered.

What types of information can negatively impact a Credit Score?

There are many things that can potentially negatively impact a Credit Score, but include the number and severity of payments, the type and number of accounts along with their age, total debt, and public records such as bankruptcy, tax liens, and civil judgments.

What is a good Credit Score?

A FICO Score between 670 and 739 is considered to be good and is within the median score range. A FICO Score above 800 indicates an exceptional score and consumers in this range may have more favorable terms and an easier approval process with new credit.
