Self disclosure time: At one point I even believed this was how it worked and made that same mistake.It’s best to stagger your requests by 3 or 4 months, in other words, so you can check all three credit bureaus once per year.
But in all fairness, it’s not like Annual Credit has the best name either. Because with the word “annual” in there, many people assume that means once per year.They think it means they can check their credit report from each of the three bureaus once per calendar year (example: Check Equifax once in 2015, once in 2016, and so forth). Rather than going by calendar year, it goes by every 12 months.When the end of the year rolls around – like the fourth quarter – I regularly hear from consumers who rush to check all three credit reports, thinking the clock will reset on January 1.It’s not until the following year when they discover they will have to wait twelve full months checking before they can do it again.Be warned: their website does NOT provide free credit scores! There are only four ways for consumers to get their real FICO scores.If you try to get your scores through their site you may have to enroll in a “free” trial with the credit bureaus that can be difficult to cancel during the 7-day grace period. The vast majority of website, including the offers from the bureaus through Annual Credit Report.com, use imitation scoring models that are not FICOs.
What they offer you is NOT used by lenders or creditors; it’s merely a score for “educational purposes.” If you want to get your real FICO, there are several sources licensed to provide it directly to consumers as of Q2 2016: Even though checking your reports through the Annual Credit website won’t get you your scores, it’s a great way to check your credit health and to make sure all the information is accurate.
However, since going live, the site has been the source of quite a few complaints: The similarly titled Free Credit took a lot of criticism for its similar sounding name (side note: they now focus on their other site, Free Credit instead).
Bush signed into law the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act.
One of its provisions required each of the three major credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax, and Trans Union) to provide consumers free access to their credit reports every 12 months.
This act gave birth to the Annual Credit website, which contrary to popular belief, is not a government-run site.
Rather, it is operated by Central Source LLC, which is a joint venture created by the three credit reporting agencies – Experian, Equifax and Trans Union.
