38: Lack of bankcard account information


Bankcard accounts include credit cards and charge cards from a bank and are frequently revolving accounts. They allow you to carry a balance and your monthly payment will vary, based on the amount of your balance. The VantageScore credit score model relies on information in your credit files at the three national credit reporting companies (Equifax, Experian and TransUnion) to generate your score. A mix of different types of open and active credit accounts, including bankcard accounts, can have a positive impact on your score.


Maintaining open and active credit accounts in good standing can help improve your credit score.
