If you have ever applied for credit, you already know how much your credit score affects your finances.The amount of money you qualify for and the interest you will be charged are tightly linked to the single three digit number that is your credit score. As a result, your credit score likely ends up dictating the size and location of your home, the type of car you drive, and the money you have leftover for vacations or other luxuries.

If you have a low credit score, you will have a more difficult time getting a loan and the loans you do qualify for will weigh you down with high interest rates. Compared to people with good credit scores, you will end up paying more money per month just to pay off a loan of the same value. 

Not only will a low credit score limit your ability to get approved for credit, but with increasing regularity, it can affect other aspects of you life. For example, many employers now request a copy of your credit reports when you apply for a job. Statistics show that credit scores correlate with trustworthiness so employers will use your credit score as a way of making a decision about your character. 

In addition, in their quest to perfectly quantify their risk, insurance companies are beginning to incorporate credit scores into their insurance premium rates. The lower the credit score, the higher premiums they will require for coverage.

Dealt with some other companies in my area and it was a complete joke. Dan set up a program just for me that actually worked and fixed my score.
