Ohioans Get Free Credit Reports

Ohio residents will be able to get a free credit report starting Tuesday.

Nationwide consumer reporting companies will have to give you a copy of your report once every 12 months at your request. This comes after an amendment to the federal "Fair Credit Reporting Act."

Credit reports have personal information on where you live, how you pay your bills, criminal history and whether or not you've been sued or have filed for bankruptcy.

Starting Tuesday you can call 1-877-322-8228 to get your free credit report.
