What is a credit report?

A credit report is a compilation of information that provides:


  • Identifying information such as your name, social security number, address, and date of birth; 

  • Details about your credit accounts; 

  • Public record information (bankruptcies, tax liens, and monetary judgments); and 

  • Inquiries showing when your credit history was reviewed.
