    I know that some years ago we had a thread about getting a free report from each of the three credit rating companies because I did it, lol. Now I'm trying to get the # for difficult child#1 and after filling in all the info you have to sign up etc. Chances are I am in the wrong church or the wrong pew. His Disability payment comes soon and we are hoping he can buy a house. If his # is too low then I think there are experts who can negotiate debts so your number improves. Anyway if you know I'd appreciate it. Thanks DDD

    You can get one from each agency, once a year. I get one in April, the second in August and the third in December, so they're staggered.

    another great resource is creditkarma.com. My uncle's financial advisor told us about it and I use it all the time. It will advise you via your email if someone makes a hit on your report, your credit rating changes, etc. Totally free and no selling of your information to a third party.
