Podcast: Tips to Build Your Credit Score

Financial Planning, Podcasts
Building your credit is one of the first steps you can take towards your financial well-being – the cornerstone of financial freedom and spending power. For young people, it can be difficult to establish a strong credit score out of the gate and build a solid credit history that lenders take seriously. A good credit score is important because it can help you get approved for loans and credit cards. It can also help reduce the expense associated with your debts, as you’re more likely to get approved for lower interest rates if you have better credit. This podcast will give you an understanding of what makes up your credit score and provide you with tips on how to build your score.

In our latest episode, Jamaal Evans, branch manager at Shawnee Station, and Anajana Paul, Product Delivery Manager, offer guidance on how to establish good credit as a young adult. Listen in as they cover a variety of credit topics including what affects your credit score, who can see your score, common misconceptions about building credit and more.
