Free Annual Credit Report, Protect Yourself By Being Aware
TFCU recommends you take full advantage of the free annual credit report you can receive from each of the three major credit bureaus. With identity theft on the rise, it is becoming more important to know what is being reported under your name.
Once you receive your free credit report, you can call BALANCE — a financial fitness program available to our members at no cost — at 1-888-456-2227, and one of their certified credit report review specialists will review it with you and answer any questions you might have. They can also give you advice on how to handle any inaccuracies that might be in your report.
Don’t wait until you have become a victim of fraudulent activity to utilize this free service.
The three bureaus have established one central website, telephone number and mailing address to use for ordering your free report:
