Credit Score Education and Information
FMFCU understands the value of good credit. That’s why we’re here to help you manage your finances and provide resources to make understanding your credit easier. We have partnered with FICO, the creator of the FICO® Score, and the credit score most widely used in lending decisions in the US. If you have questions, we strongly recommend you visit your local FMFCU branch to speak with a Member Relationship Advisor.
