Credit Score also monitors your credit report daily.

As long as you are a Grand Bank Online Banking or Mobile App User, your credit score will be updated monthly and displayed in your mobile app and online banking. You can click "refresh score" as frequently as every day by navigating to the detailed Credit Score site within the mobile app and online banking.

Credit Score pulls your credit profile from TransUnion, one of the three major credit reporting bureaus, and uses VantageScore 3.0, a credit scoring model developed collaboratively by the three major credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. This model seeks to make score information more uniform between the three bureaus to provide consumers a better picture of their credit health.

There are three major credit-reporting bureaus—Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion – and two scoring models – FICO or VantageScore – that determine credit scores. Financial institutions use different bureaus, as well as their own scoring models. Over 200 factors of a credit report may be considered when calculating a score and each model may weigh credit factors differently, so no scoring model is completely identical. No matter what credit bureau or credit scoring model is used, consumers do fall into specific credit ranges: Excellent 781–850, Good 661-780, Fair 601-660, Unfavorable 501-600, Bad below 500.

No, Grand Bank uses its own lending criteria for making loan decisions.

Credit Score, powered by SavvyMoney, uses bank level encryption and security measures to keep your data safe and secure. Your personal information is never shared with or sold to a third party.

Credit Score makes its best effort to show you the most relevant information from your credit report. If you think that some of the information is wrong or inaccurate, we encourage you to take advantage of obtaining free credit reports from, and then pursuing with each bureau individually. Each bureau has its own process for correcting inaccurate information but every user can “File a Dispute” by clicking on the “Dispute” link within their Credit Score Credit Report. However, the Federal Trade Commission website offers step-by-step instructions on how to contact the bureaus and correct errors.

No. Checking Credit Score is a 'soft inquiry,' which does not affect your credit score. Lenders use ‘hard inquiries’ to make decisions about your credit worthiness when you apply for loans.

Yes. Credit Score will monitor and send email alerts when there’s been a change to your credit profile.

Because you accessed Credit Score through Grand Bank’s online banking options, you do nothing! Your email address will get updated automatically in Credit Score when you update it within online banking. However, we always encourage you to inform us of any contact information updates.

Your financial wellness is extremely important to us. Credit Score can help you manage your credit so when it comes time to borrow for a big-ticket purchase – like buying a home, car or paying for college – you have a clear picture of your credit health and can qualify for the lowest possible interest rate. You’ll also see offers on how you can save money on your new and existing loans with Grand Bank.

Important Information About Procedures For Opening A New Account.
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account and each beneficial owner of an account. What this means for you: When you open a personal account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents. When you open a business account, we will ask for certain business documents and identifying information of each business owner.
