2nd Step: Client Information:
To effectively serve you in optimizing your credit score, we often have to send correspondences on your behalf to credit bureaus and furnishers. To successfully perform these tasks, and to communicate with you effectively, we need your personal information. e.g Your full name, date of birth, social security number, full address, best phone number, and email address. Please complete this page in its entirety for speedy results when we start the dispute process. After submitting your information, you can click on the “next” button to go to the ‘upload documents’ page.
3rd Step: Payment Information:
In order to start the credit restoration process by building a credit analysis and preparing your first dispute rounds, we first need to obtain your payment information. Currently, we are processing all payments through Electronic Checks (ACH). If you want to use a credit card, please contact our office for further instructions. Complete this page and then click on the “next” button to complete the client auto signup process.
4th Step: Credit Monitoring Services:
In order to determine what is affecting your credit scores, we need to obtain a copy of your credit reports and credit scores for all three bureaus. We are able to import these reports and scores directly from certain monitoring services e.g. Smart Credit and Identity IQ to speed up the process. With a monitoring service, we and you will be able to track the progress of our effort to improve your scores. You can select the credit monitoring companies’ we support websites to select the one that fits your budget. Once you signup for the service, you will enter your username, password, security word and we will be able to import information into our system. If you already have your credit reports, please reach out to our office and will provide the necessary information to get that information to our processing department.
5th Step: Upload Proof of Identification:
The next step is to upload a copy of your social security card, ID documentation and proof of address—preferably a recent utility bill. Please note that we secure this information. Why we need this information? The credit bureaus have to establish your identity and will not move forward unless they are able to identify that you are who say you are. If any of these documents are not available, proceed to the next screen, but ensure that you send the document(s) to us as soon as possible. After submitting them, click on the “next” button to move to the ‘credit monitoring’ screen.
Once you complete all steps, your information will be sent to our processing team to begin the credit score optimization process. If you skipped any section during the online process, please contact our office so we can gather the documents or information needed, to avoid any delay in the process.
