What are FICO® Scores?

FICO® Scores are numbers that summarize your credit risk. Scores are based on a snapshot of your credit file at particular consumer reporting agencies at a particular point in time, and help lenders evaluate your credit risk. FICO® Scores influence the credit that’s available to you and the terms, such as interest rate, that lenders offer you. Back to top


How are FICO® Scores calculated?

FICO® Scores are calculated from many different pieces of credit data in your credit report. This data is grouped into five categories as outlined below. The percentages in the chart reflect how important each of the categories is in determining how FICO® Scores are calculated.

  1. 35% - Payment History
  2. 30% - Outstanding Debt
  3. 15% - Credit History Length
  4. 10% - Pursuit of New Credit
  5. 10% - Credit Mix

How often will I receive my FICO® Score?

Program participants will receive their FICO® Credit Score updated on a monthly basis, when available. Back to top

Why is my FICO® Score not available?

The availability of your FICO® Score is meant for the primary account holder of consumer credit card accounts.

A few reasons your FICO® Score may not be available:

  • You are a new consumer credit card account holder – Your FICO® Score is refreshed monthly and may not have been available during our last score refresh process.
  • You are not the primary account holder on your joint account.
  • You are an authorized user.
  • Your credit card account is no longer active.
  • Your score was temporarily unavailable at the time of our monthly score refresh process.

Where does the information used to calculate my FICO® Score come from?

A FICO® Score is based on the credit information in a credit file with a particular consumer reporting agency (CRA) at the time the score is calculated. The information in your credit files is supplied by lenders, collection agencies and court records. Not all lenders report to all three major CRAs. The FICO® Score that we provide to you is based on data from your Equifax® report as of the ‘pulled on date’ shown with your score. Back to top


What are Key Score Factors?

When a lender receives a FICO® Score, "key score factors" are also delivered, which explain the top factors from the information in the credit report that affected the score. The order in which FICO® Score factors are listed is important. The first indicates the area that most affected that particular FICO® Score and the second is the next significant area. Knowing these score factors can help you better understand your financial health over time. However, if you already have a high FICO® Score (usually in the mid-700s or higher), score factors are informative but, not as significant since they represent very marginal areas where your score was affected.

Why is this FICO® Score different than other scores I’ve seen?

There are different credit scores available to consumers and lenders. FICO® Scores are the credit scores used by most lenders, but different lenders (such as auto lenders and credit card lenders) may use different versions of FICO® Scores. In addition, your FICO® Score is based on credit file data from a particular consumer reporting agency, so differences in your credit files may create differences in your FICO® Scores. When reviewing a score, take note of the date, bureau credit file source, score type, and range for that particular score. Back to top


Why do FICO® Scores fluctuate/change?

There are many reasons why a score may change. FICO® Scores are calculated each time they are requested, taking into consideration the information that is in your credit file from a particular consumer reporting agency (CRA) at that time. So, as the information in your credit file at that CRA changes, FICO® Scores can also change. Review your key score factors, which explain what factors from your credit report most affected a score. Comparing key score factors from the two different time periods can help identify causes for a change in a FICO® Score. Keep in mind that certain events such as late payments or bankruptcy can lower FICO® Scores quickly. Back to top


How do I check my credit report?

Because your FICO® Score is based on the information in your credit report, it is important to make sure that the credit report information is accurate. You may get a free copy of your credit report from each of the three consumer reporting agencies (CRAs) annually. To request a copy of your credit report, please visit: http://www.annualcreditreport.com. Please note that your free credit report will not include your FICO® Score. Back to top
