Not sure if this applies internationally, but US residents can check their credit report for free via Annual Credit Report. With all the cases in identity theft and credit fraud and such, it’s definitely something to add to your Next Actions (GTD) list.
My advice, setup three events in your calendar:
- April 1: AnnualCreditReport.com – Transunion
- August 1: AnnualCreditReport.com – Equifax
- December 1: AnnualCreditReport.com – Experian
This way, if you need to make any adjustments to one or waiting for account closing to appear, you can easily check them the following event.
So, do it NOW. I must say that I fell behind and I’m doing my “first” check in June.. 😦
