Ways to Improve Your Credit

1. Check Your Credit Report Regularly:

  • Obtain free annual credit reports from major credit bureaus.
  • Review for errors, discrepancies, or unauthorized accounts.

2. Pay Your Bills on Time:

  • Timely payments have a significant impact on your credit score.
  • Set up reminders or automatic payments to avoid missing due dates.

3. Reduce Credit Card Balances:

  • Aim to keep your credit card balances below 30% of your credit limit.
  • Pay off high-interest cards first or consider consolidating debt (TCU can help).

4. Limit New Credit Applications:

  • Opening several new credit accounts in a short period of time can lower your score.
  • Apply for credit only when necessary and when you have done your research.

5. Diversify Your Credit Mix:

  • A mix of credit types (credit cards, mortgage loan, car loan) can positively impact your score.

6. Build a Solid Payment History:

  • Consistent, on-time payments over an extended period improve your creditworthiness.

7. Use Secured Credit Cards:

  • If you have limited or no credit history or a low credit score, consider a secured credit card to establish credit or rebuild bruised credit.
