Experian is committing 80,000 free, 12-month memberships to The National Foundation for Credit Counseling customers nationwide through the freecreditscore.com website.
Experian is investing in “financial education intended to remove the mystery surrounding credit reports and scores,” said Victor Nichols, CEO of Experian North America.
The goal is to enable counselors to help people be aware of their financial behaviors, good and bad.
The freecreditscore.com membership includes access to Experian credit reports, credit scores along with credit monitoring, new activity alerts, mobile app alerts and updates, and access to fraud resolution agents. Plus, Experian’s “Score Planner” shows consumers how various financial actions impact credit scores.
In addition to online access to information the program offers one-on-one financial reviews with an NFCC certified financial professional and a financial education workshop.
Experian has analyzed the effectiveness of Credit Educator. Those who came through the training improved their credit score by 21 points over a 12-month period.
