Why should I check my credit score?
Checking your credit score means you can take steps to improve it. This means you’re more likely to be accepted for your next credit card or loan and get a wider range of deals. But there are two other great benefits to checking your score. You can:
- Correct mistakes on your report
Sometimes credit reference agencies have wrong information about you, which can harm your credit score. Easily fix any mistakes so you’re in the best position when you apply for credit.
- Make sure nobody has stolen your identity.
