Why my credit score is low.

There is a bankruptcy (or other Public Record) on your credit report. Bankruptcy (or other Public Record) is a proven indicator of risk with future payments and causes a significant drop to your credit score over an extended period of time. What You Can Do: Make all future payments on time. The impact on your credit score from the bankruptcy (or other Public Record) will diminish over time. You have too many delinquent or derogatory accounts. You have had too many accounts with payments that are at least 30 days late and/or on which a lender has reported a derogatory status.

What is a credit score?

Your credit score is a number based on the information in your credit file that shows how likely you are to pay a loan back on time – the higher the score, the less risk you represent. The credit score that lenders use is called a FICO score. Your FICO score helps a lender determine whether you qualify for a loan and what interest rate you’ll pay. FICO scores are calculated from credit data in your credit file that can be grouped into five categories: payment history, amounts owed, length of credit history, new credit, and types of credit used. Visit my FICO for more information about credit scores.
