In addition to keeping in the financial know, you may be interested in checking your credit score and report.
¹The credit scores provided under the offers described here use the Equifax Credit Score, which is a proprietary credit model developed by Equifax. The Equifax Credit Score and 3-Bureau scores are each based on the Equifax Credit Score model, but calculated using the information in your Equifax, Experian and TransUnion credit files. The Equifax Credit Score is intended for your own educational use. It is also commercially available to third parties along with numerous other credit scores and models in the marketplace. Please keep in mind third parties are likely to use a different score when evaluating your creditworthiness. Also, third parties will take into consideration items other than your credit score or information found in your credit file, such as your income.
²The Automatic Fraud Alert feature is made available to consumers by Equifax Information Services LLC and fulfilled on its behalf by Equifax Consumer Services LLC.
³Equifax Credit Report Control™ is only available while you have a current subscription to Equifax Complete Premier. Locking your credit file with Equifax Credit Report Control will prevent access to your Equifax credit file by certain third parties, such as credit grantors or other companies and agencies. Credit Report Control will not prevent access to your credit file at any other credit reporting agency, and will not prevent access to your Equifax credit file by companies like Equifax Personal Solutions which provide you with access to your credit report or credit score or monitor your credit file; Federal, state and local government agencies; companies reviewing your application for employment; companies that have a current account or relationship with you, and collection agencies acting on behalf of those whom you owe; for fraud detection and prevention purposes; and companies that wish to make pre-approved offers of credit or insurance to you. To opt out of such pre-approved offers, visit www.optoutprescreen.com/.
4We will require you to provide your payment information when you sign up and we will immediately charge your card $4.95. After that, we will charge the card $19.95 for each month you continue your subscription. You may cancel at any time; however, we do not provide partial month refunds.

Equifax has pledged more than $500,000 in support to help communities improve access to credit and build financial responsibility through a five-year partnership with Operation HOPE, a financial dignity nonprofit committed to providing financial empowerment to under-served communities.
As part of the partnership, Equifax Chairman and CEO Richard F. Smith will join the Operation HOPE National Board of Directors to promote the aligned goals of the two organizations. Equifax Personal Solutions President Trey Loughran will join Operation HOPE’s Southeastern Board.
“Operation HOPE’s mission directly reflects Equifax’s own values and initiatives of helping responsible individuals achieve financial empowerment,” Smith said.
“We are pleased to partner with them to enable greater financial literacy among under-served consumers and communities across the country. By helping people gain access to credit, you open doors—whether it’s to a car loan, a better mortgage, or the opportunity to go to college. We look forward to joining with them to further assist this worthy initiative.”
Equifax’s commitment will support the growth of Operation HOPE’s HOPE Inside Program and 700 Credit Score Community, and help bring credit information to communities affected by natural disaster through Operation HOPE’s Hope Coalition America.
Executives from Equifax will also participate in Operation HOPE’s Global Financial Dignity Summit in Atlanta this November and work closely with Operation HOPE’s Financial Dignity Center, which is based out of the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta.
“We are pleased to gain the support of Equifax, so that we can change people’s lives. Their $500K commitment over the next five years will give Operation HOPE more opportunity to help small businesses and individuals improve their credit scores,” said John Hope Bryant, Operation HOPE founder, chairman and CEO.
“It is one of the cornerstones of our 700 Credit Score Community, a program that will turn under-served communities into emerging markets, giving people the keys to more resources and wealth.”
Since its inception in 1992, Operation HOPE has served more than 2 million individuals and currently serves in more than 300 U.S. cities, as well as South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Morocco and the United Arab Emirates.
