Infamous deep dish pizza, great architecture (who doesn’t love The Cloud Gate?), and a gigantic multicultural city that is a fraction of the cost to live in compared to LA or NYC – need we say more? In addition to the attractive offerings of Chicago’s social scene, the city has a thriving economy, offering a mountain of employment opportunities for its residents. All these great attractions, and yet many Chicago residents are barely treading water when it comes to their credit scores. Chicago holds an average credit score of 648, a wildly low number in comparison to Illinois as a whole, which averages 671.

Creditors and lenders use a scoring system known as FICO®, which analyzes how likely you are to repay borrowed funds and calculates your credit risk. The scoring ranges from 300 to 850 and is determined by evaluating the following areas: your payment history, new credit, debt ratio, length of credit history, accounts owned, and your credit mix. Having a poor credit score is something anyone can experience. When the economy is suffering, you get laid off, or you’re hit with unexpected medical bills, financial hardship can quickly cause maxed out credit cards and unpaid bills.

How Does Credit Restoration Work In Chicago?

When a few poor financial decisions cause your credit score to tumble into murky waters, it’ll have a massive impact on your life. Lenders will see you as a risky borrower, denying you financing for a new home, college loans, or even that shiny new car you’ve had your sights set on. Because you’re classified as a high-risk borrower, you’ll be subject to higher interest rates and fees, loftier utility bills - costing you hundreds of your hard-earned dollars - and even make you vulnerable to pricey insurance premiums, all because of an unhealthy credit score.

As a Chicago native, possessing a bad credit score can completely disrupt your social, mental, financial, and even physical well-being. Your employment application may be denied as companies often factor poor credit into their decision-making process. And don’t be surprised to see your cell phone provider tack on an unexpected security deposit to compensate for the possibility of absorbing the cost of an unpaid contract. Landlords are also wary of poor credit and will inflate your security deposit or decline your lease application as a way to protect themselves from potential loss of income.
