FACT Act
Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act: This legislation will provide consumers, companies, consumer reporting agencies and regulators with important new tools that expand access to credit and other financial services for all Americans, enhance the accuracy of consumers’ financial information and help fight identity theft. These reforms make permanent the uniform national standards of our credit markets, and institute new, strong consumer protection and free credit reports. You are entitled to one free credit report each year from each of the three credit bureaus. If you would like your credit score, each bureau charges a fee for that. There are many websites that claim to offer free credit reports, but the one that was set up by the FACT Act is www.annualcreditreport.com. If you would like to call to request your report, the number is 877-322-8228. If you would like help making sense of your credit report, please contact the loan department at your branch and we will be happy to go over it with you.
