Affect of Credit History on Insurance Premiums



CREDIT HISTORY
When companies do a credit check on you, they are given not only a score number but also details of your credit history. If you have missed payments on your credit cards then it would show up on your credit report. If you have defaulted on a loan payment, your credit history will show this.
If you have missed making payments, you are not considered responsible enough when it comes to handling money. In other words you are a higher risk than your neighbor with a great credit score.
Having a higher credit score is considered by insurance underwriters a sign of stability and responsibility. Obviously the higher the risk your insurance company considers you to be, the higher the insurance premium.
While some may be of the opinion that using credit scores to determine insurance premiums may discriminate against those who are in the lower economic group because they tend to usually get themselves in financial trouble and probably have a lower credit score.
However, others may argue that regardless of your financial status you can still live within your means, pay your bills in time and maintain a good credit score and reap the benefits that come to those with good acceptable credit scores.
A importance of a good credit score in today's world cannot be underestimated. Having a good credit history will save you money not only on your car loans and home mortgage but also on your insurance premiums.
