Young people, do you know your credit score? Let’s face, some adults may not know it either.
Fact: Credit score can range from 300 – 850. Most people have between 600-700. To calculate your score, you have to have had at least one account that has been opened or updated within the last six months. Whether you are paying those cell phone bills and credit cards on time can effect your score.
