Healthy credit scores have never been more important. As banks tighten their lending standards, it’s important to have your score as high as possible.

A FICO score is a number, in general from 300 to 850, that is formulated from your payment history, including such things as amounts of money owed, length of your credit history, new credit accounts open, and how you have used your credit. Age, salary, race, education, and religion do not affect your score. You can’t buy a good score; you can only build one over time by demonstrating that you are a responsible borrower.
