A credit score is a three-digit number assigned to an individual based on information from their credit report; scores from 660 to 900 are considered very good to excellent. Credit scores can change over time as an individual’s credit report is updated, and take into account factors such as payment history, types of credit cards, and recent credit inquiries.
A credit report is a summary of an individual’s credit history and current credit situation. It also includes information such as the person’s credit accounts, payment history, and unpaid balances. It is created when an individual borrows money or applies for credit for the first time.
