Your credit report is based on your history of borrowing and repayment. This also includes information on bankruptcy and tardy payments.
There are many reasons why knowing what is on your credit report is a good idea. It will allow you to see where potential impacts to your credit score might be, or to allow you to see where credit reporting companies have made errors on your credit report, or even to tell if someone has stolen your identity and is engaging in activity under your name.
Thanks to a FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) grant, the Milwaukee Public Library is happy to present the Do You Know What's On Your Credit Report? Find Out! program. This program will be at a number of different Neighborhood Libraries over the next few months, starting with Zablocki and Forest Home in February.
