Building Good Credit

Why is life so difficult for young adults? You can’t get a job without experience, and you can’t get experience without a job. You can’t borrow without a credit history and you can’t establish a credit history without borrowing. Considering the millions of young adults who go through this same scenario every year, why do we not have a more systematic way to fix this issue?
 
While I can’t fix the economy I can offer a few suggestions for establishing some credit history. But be warned: You need to decide why you are establishing credit. Buying a home is a worthy cause, but establishing a credit history just to borrow money and go deeper into debt, is not

1. Borrow your own money. The only good reason to borrow your own money is to establish good credit, so don’t worry, this does make sense. This approach works if you have a savings account or otherwise have access to money (usually you will need between $1,000 and $5,000, depending on your bank). You can get a secured loan through most credit unions where they lend you an amount equal to whatever you have in your account. You can’t get to the money in your account since you are using it as collateral. Then you pay it back monthly. You will lose money in interest this way, but consider it a fee to establish some credit history.

2. Pay back your student loans on time. If you have student loans (the kind that are in your name) then once you start your repayment period, you are establishing a credit history. Of course missing or late payments will result in a poor credit history, but on-time payments will establish you as a reliable borrower. Choose electronic payments to make sure you don’t forget to pay....
