Credit Reports


Our comprehensive database contains information on approximately 200 million credit-active individuals in the U.S. provided by more than 85,000 credit-issuing institutions. Each month, we receive billions of updates. This enables us to offer you the most current and extensive consumer information.

Our credit reports also enable you to:

  • Balance approval rates with acceptable risk levels - Using the most up-to-date information to make approval decisions can help you determine which consumers to approve for credit based upon the risk level set by your organization.
  • Decrease manual review time – Save time and money by using add-on services to a credit report that help target only potentially risky accounts for manual review before an approval decision is made.
  • Streamline internal processes – When full credit information is not needed, chose a modified version of a credit report to make quicker decisions and reduce costs.

The inside of a credit report

TransUnion credit reports are comprised of five sections: Identifying Information, Tradelines, Collections, Public Records, Inquiries and a credit score. Any consumer statements or other Fair Credit Reporting Act information will also be displayed.

  • Identifying Information – Facts about a consumer including legal name and aliases, current address, past addresses if current address is under two years, date of birth, social security number, and current telephone number.
  • Tradelines – All credit accounts held by the consumer as well as current and past payment histories.
  • Collections – Any accounts being processed by a third party collection agency.
  • Public Records – Information pertaining to county, state, and federal court records including civil judgments, tax liens and bankruptcies.
  • Inquiries – Information about other companies that have reviewed the consumer’s credit report within the last two years.
