Understanding Your Credit Report and Credit Score

Have you ever been told to close old credit card accounts to help improve your credit score? Have you ever been told that pulling your own credit report hurts your credit score? In this class, we will discuss the components of a credit score and examine some of the common myths. You will learn strategies for increasing your score and learn to avoid doing things that can negatively impact it. Learn how to get your free credit report, how to read it, and how to dispute and correct any errors that you find.

Basic Money Management

Life is busy and hectic for all of us. Unfortunately it is easy to become disorganized and forget important events.
