U.S. Senate: Co-sponsor the Free Access to Credit Scores Act!

    1. Sponsored by

      Consumers Union of United States

We cleared the first hurdle to getting free credit scores with the planned introduction this week of a bill in the Senate. Now, we have to get it passed.

If every Senator hears from their constituents that a free credit score is important to their financial future, we can make it happen. We did it in 2003 with free credit reports.

Your credit score can determine what interest rate you pay for loans and credit cards, how big a deposit you have to put down for an apartment – even how much you are charged for car insurance. 



This is important information, and you should have the right to know it for free. You also should be given the same credit scores lenders get so you know exactly what they are basing their decisions about you.

Sign the petition to ask your Senators to co-sponsor and support this legislation.

      It is my credit report, I should have the ability to see EXACTLY what the lenders see. If I am going to be paying for loans and so forth, then I want to know exactly what I am getting into.

      We deserve the right to know our true credit scores and not have it kept a secret from us when it affects our lives so heavily.

      My life rides on these scores and can be disrupted without my knowledge.
