CFPB Free Credit Score List Project

The Office of Financial Education of the CFPB is exploring how to produce a list of companies offering existing customers free access to a credit score.  The CFPB believes that it could leverage the list to bring consumer attention to the topic and develop content to educate, inform and empower consumers on the use and availability of credit scores and credit reports.  As part of this initiative, the CFPB is soliciting comments.  You may submit comments regarding the “Notice of a Public List of Companies Offering Existing Customers Free Access to a Credit Score,” identified by the title and by Docket No. CFPB-2016-0043, by any of the following methods:

  • Electronic: http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the instructions for submitting comments.
  • Mail: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Attention: Office of Financial Education), 1700 G Street NW, Washington, DC 20552
  • Hand Delivery/Courier: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Attention: Office of Financial Education), 1275 First Street NE, Washington, DC 20002 

Comments must be received on or before November 4, 2016. Commenters must meet certain criteria in order to be included in the list.  Those criteria are outlined in the Federal Register Notice
