Best 18th birthday present: A 763 FICO score
My son George turned 18 this month. Here’s what he did on his birthday:
- Updated his driver’s license.
- Had lunch with Dad.
- Shopped at Guitar Center.
- Opened a PayPal account.
- Changed his password on his bank account (because, apparently, moms can’t be trusted the minute you turn 18).
The next day? He and I pulled his first credit report and FICO credit score.
