Improving Your Credit Score
There are several things you can do to improve your credit score, both in the short term and over time.
* Pay your bills on time
* Pay down your debt
* Check your credit report and correct any inaccurate items
* Limit how frequently you apply for new credit and how much you charge on existing credit
* Don’t close old accounts – this can shorten the length of your reported credit history
Understanding your credit score can help you make smart credit decisions and improve your overall financial situation.
