March 8, 2018 – Credit Health Check-Up; Protecting Your Identity Special Event

We depend on credit for so many important things in life. Your credit score can determine whether you can buy a car or rent a home…and even how much it will cost you. Plus, with the sheer volume of data breaches today, it’s important to know more than just your score, you also need to know what is on your credit report! That’s why First Capital Federal Credit Union is offering you a FREE Credit Health Check-Up during our Protecting Your Identity Special Event. Our experienced team will review your credit report to determine what is affecting your score, check for unauthorized inquiries, provide suggestions for improving your credit score, and answer any questions you may have! We will have several staff on site and time slots available throughout the evening. Our E-Services and Contact Center Manager will also be on hand to assist you with any digital needs. Don't wait to take control of your financial health!
