How to receive a free Annual Credit Report

Under federal law you are entitled to a copy of your credit report annually from all three credit reporting agencies - Experian®, Equifax® and TransUnion® - once every 12 months. Every consumer should check their credit reports from each of the 3 bureaus annually. Doing so will make sure your credit is up-to-date and accurate. Each reporting agency collects and records information in different ways and may not have the same information about your credit history.

How to request a free statutory annual credit file disclosure?

  1. You may contact the Central Source by visiting http://www.annualcreditreport.com/
  2. You can request by phone and call 877 FACTACT
  3. You can complete the Request Form and mail it to:
    Annual Credit Report Request Service, P.O. Box 105281, Atlanta, GA 30348-5281

When you order, you will need to provide your name, address, Social Security number, and date of birth. To verify your identity, you may need to provide some information on your credit report, such as the amount of your monthly mortgage payment.

Your free annual credit report does not include your credit score. A credit score is an additional service that can be purchased when getting your credit report. Along with knowing your credit score you will learn what factors positively or negatively impact your credit risk.
