Ally is pleased to announce that our customers will soon have free access to their FICO® Score, giving them more tools to better understand their credit health. The big news was announced January 12, 2015 at President Obama’s BuySecure event at the Federal Trade Commission. Read more about the President’s initiative on the White House blog.

Access to your FICO Score is the latest addition to the free personal finance resources available to Ally customers. We offer a wide range of financial education tools through the Wallet Wise program online or through local community in-person sessions. You can take the online courses at any time, free of charge. Ally also offers a Financial IQ quiz so you can test your knowledge of key topics on the Wallet Wise website.

FICO Scores will be available to customers who use Ally Auto Online Services or the Ally Auto Mobile Pay app. In February, a cross section of our customers with online accounts will have access to the pilot program, with a full launch coming this summer. Ally Auto customers can register for an online account profile at any time on Ally’s website.

We’re excited to be part of the President’s BuySecure initiative to drive awareness of the many resources available to help consumers manage their financial matters. Having free and easy access to your FICO Score is one simple way to continually monitor your credit health and track improvements, as well as a means to know early if your credit profile has been compromised.
