Sample Letter Requesting a Copy of Your Credit Report

The information in your credit report determines in large part what kind of credit, from car loans to credit cards to mortgages, you’ll be able to get. Federal law gives you the right to know what consumer credit information is collected on you and you need to exercise that right.

Check your “Credit Report” periodically to ensure that all the information is correct and to guard against your credit being assumed by identity thieves. You can be very aggressive with your credit management and pull your score with some regularity. Or you can take a more passive approach, checking once a year to see the status of your credit. Regardless of which approach you take, it’s not hard to get a copy of your credit report.

Many people, however, prefer the old-fashioned mail system when it comes to dealing with transmission of personal financial data. If you are more comfortable asking for a copy via a letter, then simply use this form and send a separate letter to each credit reporting agency.
