The webinar examined the importance of a credit report and discusses how to order, review, and correct them. Presenters also discuss free resources to help teens prepare to get credit and avoid pitfalls when applying for student loans, buying a car, renting an apartment, or making other financial decisions. Identity theft is a concern to foster youth and will be covered in this webinar.
