Keeping tabs on your credit report is one resolution to add for the New Year to help improve your financial health. A 2016 Credit.com survey showed that 26 percent of Americans have never checked their credit report, questioning their importance. Gay Pustaver from Money Management Counselors says looking at your “adult report card” can have big financial benefits.
Nearly 40 percent of millennials do not even know where they can find their credit report according to the survey, which Pustaver says can be found for free at annualcreditreport.com from the three credit bureaus. This is the first in a series of financial resolutions to keep in mind heading into the New Year.
