As long as you are a regular online banking user, your credit score will be updated every month and displayed in your online banking screen. You can select “refresh score” as frequently as every day by navigating to the detailed Credit Sense site from within online banking.

Credit Sense pulls your credit profile from TransUnion, one of the three major credit reporting bureaus, and uses VantageScore 3.0, a credit scoring model developed collaboratively by the three major credit bureaus: Equaifax, Experian, and TransUnion. This model seeks to make score information more uniform between the three bureaus to provide consumers a better picture of their credit health.

No. Checking with Credit Sense is a “soft inquiry”, which does not affect your credit score. Lenders use “hard inquiries” to make decisions about your credit worthiness when you apply for loans.

Accessing your credit score is fast and easy. Once you’ve logged into online banking or the mobile app, locate Credit Sense in the menu. To enroll, you must first answer a few questions to verify your identity, and then agree to the terms and conditions. After agreeing, your credit score will display each time you log in.
