10th Annual Credit Score Survey to Be Released

WASHINGTON , July 16 /Businesswire/ - At a press teleconference at 12:00 noon Eastern on Monday, July 20th, the Consumer Federation of America and VantageScore Solutions will release the results of their tenth annual survey on consumer understanding of credit scores. The survey reveals surprising data about who intends to apply for credit in the coming year. These results are critically important given the extraordinary impact the COVID-19 crisis has had on the financial lives of consumers.

At the press teleconference CFA and VantageScore Solutions will release the latest consumer credit survey results and other key information regarding credit scores including:

  • What consumers understand, and don’t understand, about credit scores and their uses.
  • How income levels affect credit score knowledge.
  • What's at stake when consumers do not understand their credit scores.
  • The best way consumers can raise their credit scores.
  • An online Credit Score Quiz (creditscorequiz.org) designed to educate consumers, particularly low-income consumers, about credit scores.
