FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is SavvyMoney Credit Score?
    Answer:

    SavvyMoney is a comprehensive Credit Score program offered by TruWest® Credit Union, that helps you stay on top of your credit. You get your latest credit score and report, an understanding of key factors that impact the score, and can see the most up to date offers that can help reduce your interest costs or lower your monthly payments. With this program, you always know where you stand with your credit and how your financial institution can help save you money.

    SavvyMoney Credit Score also monitors your credit report daily and informs you through digital banking and by email if there are any big changes detected such as: a new account being opened, change in address or employment, a delinquency has been reported or an inquiry has been made. Monitoring helps users keep an eye out for identity theft.

  • What is SavvyMoney Credit Report?
    Answer:

    SavvyMoney Credit Report provides you all the information you would find on your credit file including a list of current or previous loans, accounts and credit inquiries.  You will also be able to see details on your payment history, credit utilization and public records that show up on your account. Like SavvyMoney, when you check your credit report, there will be no impact to your score.

  • What is the Score Simulator tool?
    Answer:

    The Score Simulator is an interactive tool that allows you to select various actions you may take and see how your credit score could be affected. Different actions, like paying off a credit card balance might make your credit score move up or down. Just like checking your credit score through SavvyMoney, using the simulator does not affect your actual credit score.

  • Is there a fee?
    Answer:

    No. SavvyMoney is entirely free, and no credit card information is required to register.

  • How often is my credit score updated?
    Answer:

    As long as you regularly access online banking, your credit score will be updated every 7-days and displayed within your online banking screen. You also have the ability to refresh your credit score and full credit report every 24-hours by clicking “Refresh Score” by navigating to the detailed Credit Score Dashboard from within online banking.

  • How does the SavvyMoney Credit Score differ from other credit scoring offerings?
    Answer:

    SavvyMoney 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: Equifax, 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. The SavvyMoney Credit Score may be different from the credit score your financial institution considers when evaluating an application for credit.  Please speak to your loan representative if you have further questions.

     

  • How does SavvyMoney Credit Score keep my financial information secure?
    Answer:

    SavvyMoney uses bank level encryption and security measures to keep your data safe and secure. Your personal information is never shared with or sold to a third party.
