Credit is part of your financial power. It helps you to get the things you need now, like a loan for education, a car or a credit card, based on your promise to pay later. Improving your credit helps ensure you'll qualify for loans if you need them.
The benefits of having credit are:
The option of buying something today and paying the money back over time, rather than having to wait. Credit offers the flexibility to act on major purchases and life opportunities that may require more money than you have on hand right now, like buying a computer, or borrowing for college.
Your credit scores determine a lot more than the loans you can get and the interest rates you pay. Insurers use credit scores to set premiums for auto and homeowners coverage. Landlords use them to decide who gets to rent their apartments.
Credit cards can be powerful financial tools for you and your family, and as with all financial products, they need to be used carefully. A credit card is a powerful payment option that allows you to purchase necessary items now and pay later.
