Credit Score

A credit score is a number that represents your creditworthiness. While you may not realize it in your day-to-day finances, a credit score can impact your goals, like buying a car, finding a place to live or even getting a job.

UW Credit Union lets you see your credit score for free with
CreditView™ in Web Branch.

Credit Report

Consumers can request one free credit report from each of the three credit reporting agencies every 12 months. Each agency could have different information, so you may want to stagger your requests from each agency during a 12-month period. Submit your request online or call 877-322-8228.

Information You'll Need to Order Your Credit Report

Before you place your request, you'll need to gather the following information:

  • Social Security number
  • Date of birth
  • Current address
  • Previous address (if you have moved within the past two years)
  • One of your credit card numbers and its credit limit
  • Mortgage account number, if you have a mortgage
  • Installment loan account number, if you have an installment loan (e.g., student, auto, personal loan)
