Check Your Credit Report


You are entitled to a free credit report annually. An amendment to the Fair Credit Reporting Act requires each of the credit reporting agency to provide you with a free copy of your credit report once every 12 months.
It's important to request a copy so you can check your report to verify that your personal and financial information is accurate.
To obtain a free copy of your credit report:
  • Visit AnnualCreditReport.com
  • Or request your free credit report by phone by calling 1-877-322-8228. Deaf and hard of hearing consumers can access the TTY service by calling 711 and referring the Relay Operator to 1-800-821-7232.
  • Or request your free credit report by mail by completing the Annual Credit Report Request Form and mailing it to:
         Annual Credit Report Request Service
         PO Box 105281
        Atlanta GA 30348-5281
