Get My Credit Score

What is a credit score?

A credit score is a number that helps credit providers know how responsible you are to lend to. It’s between 0 and 1200, where a higher number means you are more likely to be able to repay the loan. The score comes from your credit report which looks at your situation and your past behaviour.

An Equifax Score is the credit score we provide you – Equifax (formerly known as Veda) is Australia’s leading credit reporting body, and has credit information on 18 million Australians, and is used by most lenders and credit providers.

By subscribing for free to GetCreditScore, you’ll have access to your personal credit dashboard and each month, we'll send you a reminder to log in to your dashboard and check your credit score.

Here, you will be able to see your current credit score, score history, get tips on how to improve your credit score, and see what’s helping improve your score and what’s holding it back. This information will change over time as your score changes.

Why can't I get my credit score?

There could be several reasons why we may be unable to provide you with a credit score. It may mean that you don't have an active credit report in the Equifax database or it may simply mean that you have insufficient information on your credit report.

It also could be the information provided to us didn’t match the information held by Equifax – it may be worth reviewing the information in your profile, and trying again, ensuring you populate any middle names, previous addresses and driver license numbers exactly as they appear on your documents. You can review & update your member profile here.

If this is still not successful, you can request your credit report from Equifax, ensuring the details on this report match those that you entered into your GetCreditScore member profile.
