Credit Repair by Age: Your Priorities

Credit damage isn’t a generational problem. According to data compiled by Credit Karma, credit scores by age are as follows:

  • 18-24 years old: 630
  • 25-34 years old: 628
  • 35-44 years old: 629
  • 45-54 years old: 646
  • 55+ years old: 696

If age provides wisdom, why aren’t our credit scores following suit? A 40-year-old may know more about credit than a 20-year-old, but both are faced with a unique set of financial challenges. The key to credit improvement is a dynamic focus. Keep the following priorities in mind as you age. What you learn could shed new light on credit health.

Is Credit Repair Legitimate?

I love these letters from creditors most of all because they are a testament to the fact that legitimate credit repair has a place and exists and um, is the right thing to do. You know the world seems prejudiced against credit repair and I understand why. There have been many lesser players who have conducted their business unethically. Mostly by trying to use tricks of a calendar to get the credit bureaus to delete things as a result of a 30 day-timer or something. That’s not the best way to do credit repair as we’ve discussed.
