Why is my credit score different after registering for a credit score again?
As part of Quicken's separation from Intuit, we're changing the credit score model Quicken uses to the VantageScore® credit score model based on Equifax® data. Because of this change, you will need to sign up for a credit score again with this new VantageScore product. This registration is considered a soft inquiry, and does not affect your credit score.
Due to this change, you might notice a small difference in your credit score.
This VantageScore is a VantageScore 3.0 based on Equifax data. Third parties use many different types of credit scores and are likely to use a different type of credit score to assess your creditworthiness.
What is my new VantageScore credit score?
The VantageScore provided under the offer described here uses a proprietary credit scoring model designed by VantageScore Solutions, LLC. There are numerous other credit scores and models in the marketplace, including different VantageScores. Please keep in mind third parties may use a different credit score when evaluating your creditworthiness. Also, third parties will take into consideration items other than your credit score or information found in your credit file, such as your income.
Refer to VantageScore for more about the VantageScore credit score model.
Please note, there will be no change to the way your credit score is presented. After you have updated your Quicken software and transitioned to the Quicken ID, you will simply need to re-register for the Credit Score feature and then you can continue to view your credit score as you did before.
