SavvyMoney is a comprehensive Credit Score program we have partnered with to help you stay on top of your credit. It's the engine behind "Your Credit Score".

SavvyMoney pulls your credit profile from TransUnion, one of the three major credit reporting bureaus, and uses VantageScore 3.0, a credit scoring model developed collaboratively by the three major credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. It's the engine behind "Your Credit Score". This model seeks to make score information more uniform between the three bureaus to provide consumers a better picture of their credit health.
As long as you are a regular online or mobile banking user, your credit score will be updated every month and displayed when you login to "Your Credit Score" through online or mobile banking.
There are three major credit-reporting bureaus—Equifax, Experian and Transunion—and two scoring models—FICO or VantageScore—that determine credit scores. Financial institutions use different bureaus, as well as their own scoring models. Over 200 factors of a credit report may be taken into account when calculating a score and each model may weigh credit factors differently, so no scoring model is completely identical. No matter what credit bureau or credit scoring model is used, consumers do fall into specific credit ranges: Excellent 781–850, Good 661-780, Fair 601-660, Unfavorable 501-600, Bad Below 500.

Each bureau has its own process for correcting inaccurate information but every user can “File a Dispute” by clicking on the “Dispute” link within their "Your Credit Score" Credit Report.
