Your updated info will automatically save.

Note: Putting a freeze on your credit, through each of the 3 major credit bureaus, is a smart thing to do in order to protect identity theft & the ruining of your credit. If you have set up a credit freeze, you are fully able to use this WCTFCU Credit Service. Your credit freeze will NOT affect your access to the WCTFCU credit score, report, monitoring and alert service. You will just see a smaller overlay communication on the Credit Score Dashboard reminding you that you have a freeze, and would need to contact the bureaus if you want to unfreeze it (ex. in order to open a credit card or take out a loan).
