Part 1: Strategies for Maintaining Credit Wellness
According to an analysis done by Experian in 2019, they found that “Women’s and men’s average FICO® Scores are nearly identical: 705 for men and 704 for women, according to Experian data from the second quarter (Q2) of 2019. Both groups’ scores have increased about 10 points since Q2 2015. Men carry more debt than women across nearly all categories, but the differences aren’t always significant. For instance, men have just $125 more in credit card debt than women on average, as of Q2 2019. But women have more open credit card accounts than men do: 4.5 compared with 3.6.”
Many of us have incurred debt for different reasons, such as borrowing to fund a new business, taking out a loan for more schooling, splurging on a well-deserved vacation, getting a mortgage, upgrading to a nicer car, purchasing the RV or boat of your dreams, or getting extra money to pull through some unexpected tough times. The first thing that the lenders do, when you are asking for a loan or a credit extension, is to review your credit score. As most of us know, having a great credit score means lenders would likely consider you as being a lower risk and opening up access to many more lenders that may offer you desirable interest rates and credit terms. One big upside to getting a lower interest rate is that you can save a lot of money over the life of any loans (mortgage, car, personal, etc.) you take. Its never too late to get a grip on your finances and start taking smart steps to achieve financial wellness.
Our speaker, Tiera Bonds, will discuss her strategies and tips for women to manage their debt, navigate any financial mistakes and improve their credit health.
