What's My Credit Score?

How can you raise your score? If your score isn't where you want it and it's not because there's an error on your credit reports, remember the old saying: Time heals all wounds – or a lot of them, anyway. Pay your bills on time, get rid of outstanding balances and don't take on more debt and your score will go up over time.
