Finweek English Edition - - MONEY -

It is al­ways em­pow­er­ing to know where you stand with re­gard to your fi­nances. By check­ing your credit pro­file, you will eas­ily be able to see if any­one has opened a fraud­u­lent ac­count in your name through iden­tity theft, and take the nec­es­sary steps. You will also be able to de­ter­mine the level of your cred­it­wor­thi­ness.

All con­sumers, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional Credit Act, are el­i­gi­ble to a free credit re­port once ev­ery 12 months. Some of the credit bu­reaus that will al­low you to check your credit pro­file and view your credit score for free an­nu­ally are Tran­sUnion, Ex­pe­rian, XDS and Com­pus­can.
