Good evening everyone:
Another reminder of something we all should be proud of. It takes each of us to let these companies know we need and will use this service.
Please read the message below from Lainey and Linda. Share it with everyone you know who will benefit from this accessible service..
Have You checked your ACCESSIBLE Credit Reports in 2010?
As the holiday season approaches it is a great time to review your free credit report - available in Braille, Large Print or audio format, or on-line in an accessible on-line format. Every United States citizen is entitled to one free report every twelve months from each of the three companies: Equifax, Experian and Trans Union. These companies have been providing accessible reports for two years as a result of ACB and CCB's Structured Negotiations advocacy efforts.
You can request your report in Braille, Large Print and Audio formats by calling 877-322-8228. This is a toll-free automated system. You will be asked to chose your alternative format towards the end of the call, after you enter identifying information.
Please note that while credit reports (also known as credit disclosures) are free through the toll free number above, credit scores are not. Information on how to order a credit scores will be provided to consumers ordering the initial reports. Scores should also be provided in Braille, Large Print, and audio formats to those who order the initial disclosure in these formats.
You can receive your credit report on line in accessible format by visiting www.annualcreditreport.com
More information about free accessible credit reports can be found in the post on Lainey's web site at: http://lflegal.com/2010/11/credit-access/
You can contact Lainey and Linda to report any problems (or positive experiences) by email at LF at LFLegal.com or by toll-free telephone to Linda's office at 1-800-822-5000. You can also use this contact information to report other financial or health care information that is not accessible to you.
As with all Structured Negotiations agreements - it is important that members of the blind community use the accessible services and information that the advocacy of ACB, CCB and its members have brought about!
