How To Rock An 800+ Credit Score (Your Letters)
You pay your bills on time. You're not in debt, and you have a great credit history. Yet, no matter what you do, you still find yourself stopping just below the mythical 800+ credit score threshold. What are you supposed to do? How do you push your credit score past the last hurdle? We'll discuss solutions for boosting a great credit score into a fantastic score, plus answer YOUR questions about credit card reward programs, where to keep your cash when you're waiting to buy a house, 401k questions and more on today's letter segment.
And in our headlines segment, are you seeking out new financial knowledge on your own, or are you waiting for new information to find you instead? We'll talk with Emily Shallal, senior director of product innovation at Ally Bank, about Ally's recent study on financial literacy. Plus, in our second headline, brokers have until the end of June 2020 to implement new regulations. The new rules could put a bigger strain on smaller brokers, who lack the same amount of resources as larger companies.
After some of Doug's musical trivia, we'll take a break from our letters to answer a Haven Life Line call from Gregg, who's opened a new brokerage account with Fidelity. The company has offered him a checking account., but when Greg initiatives an ACH on Day 1 it takes another 4 days before he gets access to the cash. How can they do this?
