Today’s economy runs on credit. If you want a loan or credit card, you'll need to prove your creditworthiness. That's defined by your three-digit credit score and is the key to your financial life. Good credit can be the make-or-break detail that determines whether you’ll get a mortgage, car loan or student loan, and how much you'll pay in interest for it. Bad credit will make it more difficult for you to get a credit card with a low interest rate and it will make it more expensive to borrow money for any purpose.

At our seminar, you will:

• Learn about credit scores and reports, how lenders assess your creditworthiness, and how life events can impact your score
• Understand how your credit score impacts much of your financial life, including the interest rate you'll receive on auto loans, credit cards and mortgages
• Receive tips on how to establish, maintain and improve your credit score
