Monitor Your Credit with SavvyMoney - Available in Online Banking

You can now stay on top of your credit by monitoring factors that influence your credit score within our Online Banking widget - SavvyMoney.

As a Members Choice Credit Union member, you receive free, ongoing access to your credit score and report, you can monitor your credit for key changes, and find savings opportunities on existing and new loans based on your credit score. The widget within Online Banking will automatically update your credit score and analysis every 30 days without any action from you, however you may pull your credit score and report as often as you wish without impacting your score since this is a “soft” pull or inquiry of your credit report.

SavvyMoney pulls your credit profiles from TransUnion, and uses VantageScore 3.0, a credit scoring model developed collaboratively by the 3 major credit bureaus—Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. SavvyMoney is an educational tool and your score may differ from the hard pull we are required to do for loan decisioning.
