Jill on Money with Jill Schlesinger - July 25, 2019 - 28:38

This week on the show we’re taking you to credit score boot camp with credit guru Gerri Detweiler.Helping consumers find reliable answers to their credit questions has been the theme of Detweiler’s work for the past 20+ years. Currently Head of Market Education for Nav, she helps individuals and business owners navigate the confusing world of consumer and small business credit. As an expert on credit issues, she has been interviewed for more than 3,000 news interviews including The Today Show, Dateline NBC, The New York Times, USA Today and Reader's Digest. She has also testified before Congress.Nearly two years after credit monitoring company Equifax announced that a “Cybersecurity Incident” had exposed personal information of 147 million Americans, it will pay at least $575 million, and potentially up to $700 million, to end a federal, state, and consumer claims against it. With breaches like Equifax happening on a seemingly regular basis, it’s more important than ever to keep a close eye on your credit score. And don’t forget to review your credit report every 12 months at AnnualCreditReport.com. If you find an error, report it immediately and stay on top of the process, as a lower score will cost you more to borrow. Have a money question?
