Florida Attorney General Ashely Moody is urging people in the state to take advantage of free weekly access to credit reports being offered by three national agencies.

Equifax, Experian and Transunion are offering free weekly access through April 2021 amid the economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Credit reports are vital tools in tracking consumers’ financial health and credit status. With so many Americans now facing financial hardship, it is more important than ever that Floridians monitor and protect their credit," Moody said. "Consumers who are unable to make payments due to the current pandemic should immediately consult with their lenders to determine if any assistance is available. Many businesses are suspending or delaying payment due dates for consumers in financial distress. Being proactive and taking quick action to work with lenders can help consumers protect their credit ratings during this crisis."
