Check Your Free Credit Report To Build Financial Security

The University of Wisconsin-Extension “Check Your Free Credit Report: 2/2, 6/6, 10/10” campaign seeks to make the process of remembering to order a free credit report as easy as possible. Anyone can sign up to receive an email reminder from UW-Extension three times a year—on 2/2, 6/6, and 10/10—on the campaign’s website: While you can order all three reports at the same time, the Fond du Lac County UW Extension office recommends you view one report every four months so you can be sure the information is up-to-date and accurate year round.

“There are loads of reasons why we may not keep up with monitoring our own credit,” says Michelle Tidemann, Fond du Lac County UW Extension Family Living Educator “Life is busy enough with everyday responsibilities. Our credit report reminder campaign seeks to make managing your credit history that much easier.”   Sign up and let the reminders help you monitor your credit report!  Contact UW Extension Fond du Lac County at 929-3174 for more information.
