Once we have our clients on the road to living a debt-free life, the next step is helping to improve their credit score.  I am often asked, “how can I get my credit score to go up”?  We offer resources on our website, such as our free eBook The Ultimate Guide to Your Credit Score & Credit Repair, blogs on credit repair help, and links to get your free credit report online.

 

Why your credit scores might suddenly rise this summer

The three reporting agencies – Equifax, Experian and TransUnion – have made a decision that could result in credit scores increasing for millions of consumers.  On July 1 the three credit reporting agencies will remove civil judgment and tax lien data from credit reports if that data doesn’t include the consumer’s complete information; such as social security number, date of birth, name and address.  This change will apply to existing credit reports and new data that is added to reports.

According to the Wall Street Journal, this new decision could increase credit scores for approximately 12 million consumers. This amounts to about 6 percent of the population.
