Your credit report contains facts about where you work, live, how you pay your bills, and other credit-related information. You want to be sure your credit report is complete and accurate because businesses use it to evaluate your applications for credit, insurance, employment and other purposes.

Major nationwide credit bureaus

Your credit report is maintained by nationwide credit bureaus. These include:

  • Experian
  • Equifax
  • TransUnion

The law requires each bureau to provide you with a free copy of your credit report once every 12 months if you request it. (For loan decisions, Lake Trust uses Experian as its primary credit bureau.)

Order your free credit report

You can request your free credit report in two ways:

You should use your credit score as an estimate only because the score can change often. If you believe your credit report is inaccurate, you can dispute it online for fastest resolution. If you've been denied credit, you may qualify for a free credit report.
