Financial Questions & Answers

Question:

I would like to increase my credit score to 680 or above. What would be the best approach to take? Should I get a financial adviser to help sort out all my debts or simply take on the task myself. – Jose

Answer:

Sometimes having a third party help you navigate difficult waters can be very beneficial. Rather than a financial advisor, we think you should look for a reputable credit counselor. The National Federation for Credit Counseling (www.nfcc.org) is a great place to start. Visit their website and you’ll find a tool to help you locate a counselor near you. If you decide to go it alone on your path to improving your credit score, there’s a ton of information available online. One of our favorite sites is the education center at www.myfico.com.
