Steps You Can Take to Repair a Damaged Credit Score
A growing number of consumers are filing for bankruptcy. Nowadays, lenders may pay greater attention to other factors on your credit report. The quantity of negative reporting matters, but it also matters when it was reported and how bad it is. A good approach to rebuilding your credit is to replace the most recent information on your credit report with positive credit activity that shows you are paying your bills.
You may receive credit card offers after bankruptcy that will probably carry higher interest rates. You may accept a card and use it, but you should pay it off monthly to help build a history of timely payments. Your score will improve quickly if you are careful about paying all of your bills on time.
Following are some actions you can take to help restore your credit after bankruptcy:
- Examine your credit reports and correct any discrepancies
- Set up a tight budget for yourself and follow it
- Seek new credit in moderation
- Set up your bills for automatic payment so you will never miss a payment
- Pay your student loans on time if you have them
- Get a secured or prepaid credit card if you cannot get an unsecured card
- Do not max out credit cards
When your bankruptcy is complete, you will probably have a great sense of relief. After being hounded by creditors day and night, you can now relax and focus your attention on rebuilding your credit and a better financial future. Our firm is dedicated to helping our clients achieve their goals.
