Q: What is a FICO Credit Score? 

A: A FICO Score is a three-digit number that is used by lenders to evaluate your credit risk based on your credit history at a particular point in time. It influences the credit that is available to you, as well as the terms that can be offered when a credit decision is made.

It is also commonly referred to as simply a "credit score" or "credit rating."

Q: Whom can I contact if I have questions about my FICO Score?

A: Because your FICO Score is based on the information in your credit report, it is very important to make sure that the credit report information is accurate. You may get a free copy of your credit report annually. 

Please note that your free credit report will not include your FICO Score. If you have questions on your report, you can contact Experian at 888-397-3742.

Q: How is the payoff calculated on a retail account?

The payoff is calculated on the current principal balance. The payoff amount will include interest for 21 days from the date the payoff is quoted. Any overpayment refund will be issued within 15 business days. Payoffs may include outstanding fees (late fees, returned check fees, etc.) owed on the account.

Q: Are there any penalties/discounts for paying off my retail or lease account early?

No, retail and lease accounts may be paid off at any time without a penalty.
