Free Credit Reports for Consumers
A provision of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions (FACT) Act providing consumers with access to a yearly free credit report went into effect on December 1, 2004. Each of the three nationwide credit reporting agencies, Equifax, Experian and TransUnion, will now provide you with a free copy of your credit report, at your request, once every 12 months.
Getting the Reports
The three credit bureaus have established one central website, telephone number and mailing address to use for ordering your report. The credit bureaus will only be providing the free annual reports through this central location, not through their individual websites, telephone numbers or addresses.
