What determines my credit score?

Updated: May 14, 2019

FICO Scores are calculated from various data compiled in your credit report. This information is constantly being updated and changes all the time.

35% Payment History

* Account payment information on specific types of accounts (credit cards, installment loans, mortgage, etc.)

* Presence of adverse public records (bankruptcy, judgments, suits, liens, collection items, and/or delinquency (past due items)

* Severity of delinquency (how long past due)

* Time since (recency of) past due items (delinquency), adverse public records (if any), or collection items (if any)
