Credit Score & Insights

Keeping tabs on your credit score is one important way to stay informed about your financial well-being. By doing so, you are ready to take positive action to maintain or improve your financial health.

Credit scores – three little numbers that can have a big impact on your financial life. That’s because the better your credit score, the more likely you’ll qualify for better interest rates for different lending products. And the better your rate, the less you’ll pay in interest over the life of your loan, saving you hundreds, even thousands of dollars.

Now checking on your credit score is as easy as checking your account balance. See your credit score right in ESL Online and Mobile Banking with just a few clicks or taps.

Questions? We have answers:

Credit information is supplied directly from Equifax and updated monthly on the date you enroll.

  • Example: if you enroll on April 18, your credit score and associated insights will be updated on the 18th day of each month following.
  • Example: if you enroll on May 31, your credit score and associated insights will be updated on the last day of each month following.

It is unlikely that a user’s credit score will be the same when pulled from different sources. Each credit scoring model has its own formula that may consider different factors of your credit report. For example, when you apply for a credit product, the lender may be looking at different credit factors to make a lending decision and therefore may be leveraging a different scoring model.

  • Additionally, there are three different credit bureaus (Equifax, Trans Union, and Experian) and not all lenders report to all three. This difference in reporting can result in each of the three credit bureaus having slightly different credit report information and you may see different scores as a result.
  • The ESL Credit Score & Insights solution receives your credit information directly from Equifax and leverages the VantageScore® 3.0 scoring model.

No, any member with a credit history will be able to enjoy the benefits of this solution, regardless of whether you have a credit product with ESL or not!

No, because the monthly update is coded as a “soft pull,” and has no impact on your credit score or associated insights.

The credit information we provide comes directly from Equifax; you should contact them to address any information you’d like to dispute. You can find their contact information at the bottom of the Credit Score and Insights page.
