Notice of an Update to the Public List of Companies That Offer Customers Free Access to a Credit Score
The Office of Financial Education within the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Miss April or Bureau) published in March 2017 a list of companies that told us they offer existing credit card customers free access to a credit score. The Bureau is updating this list and will use the responses received to this notice to publish an updated list. The Bureau will leverage this updated list to bring consumer attention to the topic of consumers’ credit standing, of which their credit score is a valuable indicator. The Bureau will follow up the publication of this updated list with content to educate consumers about the availability of credit scores and credit reports and how this information can be used effectively.
