How Can I See All Three of My Credit Scores?

13 Comments | Twitter | |

In this Credit Karma FAQ video, Bethy and Ezra tackle another commonly asked question in our Credit Advice Center: “How can I see all three of my credit scores?” The answer is tricky, as it turns out you have way more than three credit scores. Check out the video to learn more!

Some Key Points:

1. You can check your TransUnion credit report with Credit Karma and your other two credit reports with AnnualCreditReport.com to make sure that each bureau has your correct information. However, AnnualCreditReport won’t provide you with your scores.

2. Each bureau creates tons of scores, some that aren’t even available to you. But you don’t have to stress out about all the different scores out there. They all tend to go up and down together. The important thing is to track one score, which will show you the ups and downs that could signal a significant change in your credit health.

3. Credit worthiness is more than just your score. Lenders are starting to use other attributes along with your credit score to determine if they’ll lend to you.

4. You can monitor your credit score for free at Credit Karma. That way, you’ll know where you stand before you apply for credit.

  1. One thing that most people don’t realize, is that the credit score they see at Credit Karma, or if they pay to get their scores, will generally be higher than their score on a mortgage credit report.

    Mortgage credit reports are scored slightly different, and in my 10+ years of doing mortgages, 99% of the time the scores on my mortgage credit report are lower than scores that they received from a non-mortgage credit report.

    Good point! There are many different credit scores that people can have, depending on what information the bureaus have and the scoring model that is being used.

    Hey Arthur, creditors typically report to the bureaus once a month, so we’d recommend checking back in a few weeks to see if that changes. If you’re talking about very old balances that aren’t showing as paid, it’s possible TransUnion has some incorrect information. If that’s the case, please email support@creditkarma.com and we’d be happy to look into your account further.

    Hi Ronnie,

    Bankruptcies automatically fall off your report after 7-10 years. If it’s been longer than 10 years, you can dispute it with the credit bureaus. If not, you’ll have to wait until it falls off in time. You can learn more about how to recover from bankruptcy here: https://www.creditkarma.com/article/RecoveringFromBankruptcy

    Actually, all of those scores are your true credit scores! You actually have dozens of credit scores that can vary by bureau, scoring model, and date. You can learn more here: https://www.creditkarma.com/article/differentscores

  9. This may be a dumb question, but does CreditKarma report scores from all 3 credit reporting agencies, or only TransUnion?

    Hey Robert – No such thing as a dumb question! Credit Karma draws our credit information from only TransUnion at this point in time. You can find more information on the scores we offer here: https://www.creditkarma.com/article/guide-to-credit-karma-credit-scores

    Please let me know if there’s anything else I can help you out with. Thanks!
