Improve Credit

Improving your credit score takes time. Even when you pay off debt or resolve public records such as bankruptcy, your score may not immediately improve.

How To Improve Your Credit

  • Pay bills on time, keep balances low, and pay off debt
  • Don’t close unused credit cards and apply for and open new credit accounts only when necessary
  • Review your credit report three months before big purchases and correct inaccuracies
