List of Credit Reporting Agencies

As you navigate major life changes like applying for a loan, starting a new job, or looking for a place to live, your credit is most likely going to be assessed by a national credit reporting agency. Lenders and employers use these companies to evaluate the risk of approving you for a loan or housing and can be a critical step in pre-employment screening. Your quality of life depends on these credit reports being accurate and an error could be costly.

If you notice an error, you should flag credit report inaccuracies immediately.
