What Are FICO® Scores?

Score Meter SampleSample Score

Your FICO® Score—the score lenders use™—is the credit score most lenders use to help determine your creditworthiness and the amount of risk they might be taking by loaning you money. Your score summarizes your credit report information into a single three-digit number that lenders can use along with other information to assess your credit risk quickly, fairly and consistently. It’s important to note that since your FICO® Scores are based on your credit reports, it’s a good idea to make sure your credit report information is accurate.

Tip: You can obtain one free credit report from each of the consumer reporting agencies each year when you visit www.AnnualCreditReport.com. Remember, your report will not contain your FICO® Score, however your FICO® Score is based on that report.

 

Yes, FICO® Scores are based on information from your credit reports, but of that information, there are 5 key categories that determine your score.

  1. Your Payment History: the details on late, missed and on-time payments from all of your accounts (credit cards, retail accounts, installment loans, finance company accounts). This is 35% of your score.
  2. The Amounts You Owe: the number of accounts where you carry a balance and the types of those accounts, plus the amounts owed on all accounts, especially as they relate to your total available credit and/or original loan amounts This is 30% of your score.
  3. How Long Your Credit History Is: how long it’s been since you used an account, and when your accounts were established—from the age of your oldest account to the age of your newest account, and the average age of them all. This is 15% of your score.
  4. New Credit Activity: new accounts and new account activity within a certain period of time, including how long it’s been since you opened a new account, your recent requests for credit and recent lender inquiries. However, you will usually not be penalized when “shopping around” for the best rates. This is 10% of your score.
  5. Types of Credit In Use: the amount of experience you have in handling different kinds of accounts, including credit cards, retail accounts, installment loans, finance company accounts and mortgage loans. This is 10% of your score.

As mentioned, FICO® Scores help lenders determine how they want to do business with you. Your FICO® Scores along with other information are used in the decision-making process related to a wide variety of credit products including:

  • Credit cards
  • Auto loans
  • Mortgages
  • Home equity lines & loans
  • Personal loans & lines of credit
  • Student loans

And when you apply for credit, your credit worthiness can also influence your:

  • Approved credit limit or loan amount
  • Your interest rate
  • Balance transfer fees
  • Rewards programs
  • And more

The better your scores, the more favorable terms you’ll be offered.
