The Debt Ninja Knows The Importance of Staying on Top of Your Credit!

The Debt Ninja knows that staying on top of your credit report may seem like a daunting task. However, he cannot stress enough that it is essential you maintain the highest credit score possible.

Your credit score assesses how well you manage your finances. It is based on many factors such as open lines of credit, debt repayment completion, timely payments, and number of credit score inquiries, just to name a few.

The Debt Ninja knows that creditors look at it as more than just a three-digit number, it is how they measure your character and trustworthiness.

Advice From The Debt Ninja: Keep It Simple

Take it from the Debt Ninja, just like any other area of life, your credit report also needs regular maintenance.

  • Pull your credit report at least once a year to see where you stand with your debts and creditors.
  • Make sure the information is accurate, complete, and up-to-date before you apply for a loan for a major purchase like a house or car, buy insurance, or apply for a job.
  • Ensure that any outstanding debts are actually money you owe and not some error on your credit report. There is nothing worse than being denied credit due to a mistake on your credit report.

What If You Find a Mistake on Your Credit Report?

  • Report any mistakes or inaccuracies in writing to the credit reporting company (Equifax, Experian, TransUnion) . They are obliged to investigate the items you question within 30 days.
  • Dispute any mistakes or inaccuracies in writing with the reporting company (person, company or organization providing information about you to the credit bureaus). Reporting companies must include a notice of your dispute when reporting items to a consumer reporting company.

The Debt Ninja Explains The Infamous “Debt Snowball.”

You can check your credit report once a year for free. So you would be crazy not to check it. Once you have pulled it up for an annual review, the first step toward cleaning up your credit is organizing your debts. The Debt Ninja suggests making a complete list of all outstanding debts, no matter how small or old. Check your list against the credit report to see which ones are still active. Then it’s time to devise a plan to pay them off.

When it comes to organizing your debts the term “debt snowball” that was made popular by financial guru Dave Ramsey comes to mind:

The Debt Ninja explains the “debt snowball” method:

  • Organize your debts from smallest to largest.
  • Pay the minimum on your greatest debt and as much as you can on the smallest debt, preferably paying off at least one small debt a month. This will also give your credit rating a boost on a monthly basis just by paying off one debt a month along with the consistent payments.
  • As you pay off each debt, then you roll the money into the next highest debt that makes it easier to pay off greater debts successively until you reach the last debt.

Finally, The Debt Ninja Leads You To Financial Freedom

Upon paying off the last debt, you may be surprised by how much you were able to pay after snowballing all of the smaller debts. Once you have no debts, this amount can be placed into an interest-bearing savings account or other investments and used for a rainy day, such as retirement.

You also discover that when your home is paid off, you have a lot of money freed up to go directly into savings. Upon reaching this level, you discover how freeing it is not having to worry about having enough money. At last, you can prepare for any catastrophes that could otherwise completely wipe you out.

To maintain credit all you need is a credit card that you just have to stay on top of and pay off. Then, make sure you stay on top of any future loans when you have to take one out such as a vehicle purchase. Whenever you need help or answers, call the Debt Ninja to assist you.
