Your FICO® score helps a lender make accurate, reliable and fast credit risk decisions across the customer lifecycle. It gives lenders a fast, objective measurement of your credit risk and whether or not they should approve you for a loan.
What is in Your FICO Score?
Your FICO score is calculated from a variety of credit data from your credit report. This data is grouped into five categories:
- Payment history
- Amount owed
- Length of credit history
- New credit
- Types of credit used
Although your FICO score considers a wide range from your credit report, it does not consider race, color, religion, national origin, sex and marital status, age, salary, occupation, title, employment history, residence, etc.
How Can You Improve Your FICO Score?
- Pay your bills on time
- Get current with outstanding debt
- Pay off debt
- Limit the amount of new and unused credit cards
- Shop around for the best loan rate
- Re-establish your credit history, if you had past issues
- Periodically check your credit report for potential inaccuracies and unauthorized activity
