Financial Wellness for Tenants: Credit Scores and Fraud Prevention

Do you know your credit score? What is FICO? How does bad credit affect my family budget? These questions might sound scary but they are vital to maintaining a healthy financial picture. Even scarier…identity theft or fraudulent charges can happen to anyone. As your Tribal housing tenants work hard toward becoming credit worthy, it is very important to discuss the potential threats of damaging credit habits, identity theft, and fraud prevention.

 

Training Objectives:

– Review how to read and evaluate your credit report

– Discover the C’s of credit

– Detail types of identity theft

– Discuss how to prevent and protect your credit and identity
