There are three main credit-reporting agencies in the United States – Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. You can obtain a free copy of your credit report from each of these agencies once a year by following these steps:

  1. Visit AnnualCreditReport.com: This is the official website authorized by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to provide free credit reports. Avoid other websites that may charge you for the report.
  2. Click on the "Request your free credit reports" button.
  3. Fill out the requested personal information, such as your name, date of birth, Social Security number, and address.
  4. Choose which credit reporting agencies you want to request the report from (Equifax, Experian, TransUnion), or select all three for a comprehensive report.
  5. Complete any additional security measures, such as answering specific questions about your credit history, to verify your identity.
  6. Once the verification process is complete, you will be able to access and download your credit report from each agency.


Alternatively, you can also request your credit report by phone or by mail by contacting each credit reporting agency directly. It's important to review your credit report regularly to ensure its accuracy and address any errors or fraudulent activity.
