One of the most controversial topics in personal finances today is about the credit score. If you do not believe just Google the phrase “does your credit score matter” and see how many entries pop up. Today I dive head first into the discussion and try to answer the questions “Does your credit score matter?” The ultimate answer is it depends, but I discuss why I do not know my credit score and why I do not care.
As mentioned in the podcast, you should care about your credit report. You can get a free copy of your report once a year at annualcreditreport.com
