This week we’re joined by Liz Weston. Liz is a Columnist and Certified Financial Planner (CFP) whose goal is to help us get smarter about money. She's the author of five books including the best-selling "Your Credit Score: How to Improve the 3-Digit Number That Shapes Your Financial Future." Her “Money Talk” column appears throughout the country, including the Los Angeles Times and she has appeared on TV shows, such as CNBC’s Power Lunch, NBC Nightly News, and the Today Show. On this show Liz lends her expertise to help us cover:

  • Why most people don't know they have hundreds of credit scores and that the FICO8 is the most commonly used by lenders
  • The surprising, hidden cost increases your credit score might have on bills ranging from insurance, cell phone, to the down payments on your apartment and cable bill
  • One mistake you can make that can lower your credit score over 100 points in one month
  • Tips for rebuilding and repairing your credit history and credit score
  • What credit utilization percentage and age you should use to determine when a consolidation loan or bankruptcy is the better option
