When it Comes to Your Credit, Do You Know the Score?


It pays to have good credit, particularly in tough economic times. Why? The difference between getting a loan with a low interest rate vs. getting a loan with a high interest rate could mean thousands of extra dollars in interest payments over the life of the loan. Get the tools you need to lay a solid foundation for your future.

Attend a Free Financial Workshop, Build a Strong Credit History, on Tuesday, February 26 at 6pm at Mid Oregon Credit Union East Bend office, 1386 NE Cushing Drive. Presenting the workshop will be Kristina Sherwin, Mid Oregon Loan Underwriter.

Your credit score is based on how you use credit, and it’s a number you can control. Unfortunately, many people don’t understand the long-term consequences of their day-to-day financial decisions. Your credit history, good or bad, follows you throughout your lifetime and has a significant impact on your family’s well-being and overall bottom line. At the workshop, you’ll learn:

  • Who needs to build good credit and why
  • The significance of your credit report and credit score
  • How to establish credit if you don’t have any
  • How to rebuild a good credit history
  • Tips for using credit wisely
  • Pitfalls that could cost you plenty
