Obtain a free copy of your credit report.

Other consumer rights to free reports
Under federal law, you’re entitled to a free report if:
- A company takes adverse action against you, such as denying your application for credit, insurance, or employment, and you request your report within 60 days of receiving notice of the action (The notice will give you the name, address, and phone number of the consumer reporting company.)
- You’re also entitled to one free report a year if you’re unemployed and plan to look for a job within 60 days; you’re on welfare, or your report is inaccurate because of fraud.
Otherwise, a consumer reporting company may charge you a fee for another copy of your report.
