Protect Your Credit
You are entitled to one free credit report each year from each of the 3 large credit reporting agencies. The cite to use to obtain your free credit report is annualcreditreport.com . Use this cite to request one report each year from each agency. Stagger your requests so that you request one every 4 months. This will allow you to receive 3 reports each year spread out over the entire year. By staggering them you will be able to monitor your credit over the course of a year. If you notice anything that is irregular and does not belong in your report you will be able to dispute it and try to remedy the situation. This is also a way to track for potential identity theft as well.
