How Often To Check A Credit Report?

Many people worry about their credit. It is a common concern. In order to qualify for certain loans, having a great credit score is key, so it makes sense that many would wonder about the health of their credit score. Many look to their credit report to try to figure out their credit score. When checking a credit report, this report will not include the credit score.
