Southfield, Michigan (PressExposure) November 11, 2009 -- Your credit score matters long after you have given up your paycheck. So before you hang up those gloves and live the life of a retiree, find out first if you are indeed ready for retirement by touching base with your credit score.
Leading Michigan financial firm, Graceful Financial Solutions (GFS), suggests that people who intend to retire should consider the status of their credit scores as they will always show up in their credit reports.
Your credit score makes up your payment history, amounts you owe, length of your credit history, types of credit used and whether you have any default payments and new credit.
Credit scores usually range from 340 to 850. The higher your score means better financing options. A credit score below 680 is already considered low and creditors use this as the primary basis for denying you credit or charging a higher interest rate.
Improving your credit score can also mean more savings for you and more chances to increase your retirement funds.
GFS founders, brothers Ryan and Earl Carruthers, have always emphasized the importance of having a good personal credit score. âIt is vital to securing lifeâs biggest financial endeavors,â they said.
Retirement should bring more fruitful years in your life and not stress you out financially. If your credit score is yet to be restored, better start weighing your options now to boost it up for the future.
Personal credit experts like Graceful Financial Solutions offer legal services to help put your credit score on the fast track to recovery.
Reaching out with grace, GFS has helped alleviate financial concerns and changed lives by increasing credit scores, keeping businesses afloat, improving credit reports, and preventing foreclosures, among other effective financial resolutions.
