What to look for

Review your credit report

What should I look for when I review my credit report?

Make sure that you recognize the information on your credit report including your personally identifiable information, such as names, addresses, Social Security Number, accounts and loans. Then check that the other information on your credit report is accurate and complete. If you find information that you believe does not belong to you or is not correct, contact the business that issued the account or the credit reporting company that issued the report.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s website has additional information on what to look for when reviewing your credit report.
