Changes Coming For Credit Scoring


About a third (30%) of one’s credit score is determined by the amount of debt that is owed when the scoring is done. The remaining 70% is split between your payment history and “other” issues which no one seems to either understand or identify. One small change may help next year with a piece of the credit scoring process.

By the end of this year, FICO, the country’s leading credit scoring organization will no longer count overdue medical bills and expenses against a person’s credit score. This could increase a credit score by as much as 25 points. But, they state that this adjustment will only be made if everything else on the credit rating scale is in good shape – so it may not help that many people since many of us do not have perfect credit with or without medical bills.
