  • What? This letter says my application for an auto loan was denied, but why?
  • That's because your credit is too low.
  • Credit is the ability to take out loans or other money that you will pay back later. Credit can be found in the form of things like home credit cards, mortgages or auto loans. There are also three kinds of credit, revolving credit, installment credit, and open credit. The most common of the three is revolving credit. Revolving credit does not have a fixed number of payments and can be charged any amount of times up to a certain amount, this is usually found in the form of credit cards or home equity lines of credit. Installment credit refers to large money loans that you pay off with a fixed regularly occurring schedule. These are found as student loans, mortgages, auto loans, or personal loans. Finally, open credit allows you to borrow from an account up to a certain amount but must be paid in full by a certain date. Open credit is usually used as charge cards.

  • To build your credit, you will need to take out loans, but you won't be able to qualify for a loan without credit history. First, you should open a checking account with a bank, this won't build credit, but it will build a relationship with your bank, which will make it easier to get your first credit card from them. Some banks offer credit cards for people who want to establish, strengthen, or rebuild credit, these are called secured cards. With a secured card, you deposit money to act as collateral, and if you fault on a loan, this money will be used. When taking loans, you can also see if someone will cosign it for you. When someone cosigns a loan for you, you will get all the benefits of their good credit and this may help you get approved. However, when someone cosigns a loan for you, they will be responsible for the debt if you fail to pay it off.

  • Now there are also a few other things you might want to keep in mind when thinking about credit, such as the difference between credit and debit, a credit report and credit score, and the overall benefits and drawbacks of credit. When you use credit, this means you are borrowing money from a lender. When you borrow money from a lender, you need to pay interest as a fee. Lenders charge you interest so they can get as much money as they can out of you in case you fault on your loan. With a higher credit score, lenders trust you more and are less quick to take your money because they believe you will be able to pay them back, meaning you will have lower interest rates. When you use money through debit, this money is coming straight out of your checking or savings account, meaning you are not borrowing money, and you do not need to pay interest. Your credit score is a three digit number that lenders use to assess your credit risk. However, a credit report is a summary of your credit reliability. Your credit report includes information such as your history of paying debts and other bills, the number and types of accounts you have, payment history, collection actions outstanding debt, age of your accounts, and any public record or collection items among others. Some of the benefits of credit are that it can make purchases easier, since many places and companies might not accept cash. It adds more security to the purchases you make, as your credit card statement can act as proof of a purchase even if the receipt is lost, and some credit card companies offer insurance. Having a strong credit score can also make it easier to be lent money without having to pay back large interest fees. However, having a low credit score can result in higher interest rates, which can make it harder to pay back your loans. Using a credit card means you're also at the risk of credit card fraud. Credit card fraud is when your credit card is stolen and used to make purchases under your name, but if this happens, you can contact your bank and they can shut down your card from being able to make purchases.
