Ooh, I’m excited about this! I think it’s unfair that our timely payments of rent and other utilities don’t count towards our credit scores. But if Congress passes this, then that all may change! Yay for better credit! 🙂

Fingers crossed! I paid off almost all my debt thinking it would help my score and it just lowered it!

I don’t get it. Rent is paid ahead of time, it isn’t a type of credit. Here, mortgage payments aren’t even reported.

@LadyBlackheart: my landlord doesnt even have our social security numbers so I don’t see that happening for me. Also, ultilities do count towards your utility credit score already which is separate.

@AB Bride: agreed, its not credit.
This is actually going to end up hurting the people its claiming to help. Credit invisible people have a tendency to be the poorer in society and the most likely to pay rents and utilities late. Just another redic move by big finance to charge people more money in interest who can afford it the least.
