17 Asset-Building Framework Asset – something that you own that has value. – you must own it, be able to control it, and be able to make decisions about it. 17

18 Balanced Asset Building Portfolio Financial Assets Social Capital Productive Assets Physical Assets Portfolio = a grouping of assets. Your asset building portfolio is basically the assets you have and are working towards. 18

19 Why Credit Reports & Scores ARE Important A bank or credit union may use them to decide whether to give you a loan. A credit card company may use them to decide whether to give you a credit card. A landlord may use them to determine whether to rent an apartment to you. An insurance company may use them to determine whether to give you insurance coverage and the rates you will pay for coverage. 19

20 Why Credit Reports & Scores ARE Important A utility company may use them to figure out how much deposit you must pay before they will turn on your electric or gas. A cell phone provider may use them to determine what plans you may be eligible for and the rates you will pay. A potential employer may use reports to determine whether you will get a job. Credit scores are completely based on information in your credit reports. 20

21 The Credit Reporting Agencies Equifax ExperianMay have different TransUnioninformation. Must check all 3. – If over 18, order from website, call them or write to them. – Use for annual free report.www.annualcreditreport.com – May not be useable if you have been the victim of identity theft. 21

22 Can You Have a Credit Report if You are Under 18? You cannot have credit report if you are under 18 unless: – You are an emancipated minor – You are an authorized user on someone’s credit card – You have student loans – You live in a state where you can be younger than 18 to enter into a financial contract – Your identity has been stolen and used by someone else to get credit or services 22

23 Calculate your final credit score using the 15 cards. Start with the first card, and go through them in order. Notice which actions make your score go UP, go DOWN and those that have no affect. Exercise in Pairs 23
