Perceptions of Credit and Credit Monitoring - US - August 2018
"The arena of credit scoring and credit monitoring is one rife with contradictions. Consumers overwhelmingly recognize the importance of building and maintaining good credit, and while most make a regular habit of checking their scores, many US consumers admit they never do. Credit reporting errors occur frequently, but consumers are generally powerless to prevent such mistakes, and are left to their own devices in search of a remedy. Despite myriad systemic issues, average consumer credit scores are, on the whole, improving."
- Chris Shadle, Financial Services Analyst
This Report looks at the following areas:
- Two thirds of consumers check their credit score more than once per year
- More than a quarter of consumers have disputed an error on their credit report
- Almost half of consumers fear their credit will be impacted by identity theft
