By law, everybody can obtain three free credit reports each year. The information in your credit report affects your life in important ways–your ability to get a loan, how much you pay for credit and insurance, securing a job, renting a house or apartment, and preventing identity theft. It is important to check your report regularly to make sure it is accurate and up-to-date. The credit reporting system is set up so that you are responsible for finding and correcting errors–you must play the role of quality controller for the information in your reports.
