CFPB: Consumers Get Free Copy of Specialty Consumer Reports


Updated on Thu Nov 29, 2012

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is reminding consumers that they are legally entitled to receive a free copy of their specialty consumer reports every year, just like with the three major credit bureaus Experian, Equifax and TransUnion.

The consumer agency has sent out a bulletin to specialty consumer reporting companies with a reminder of this rule.

Specialty consumer reporting companies include those that collect medical record or payments, residential or tenant history, check-writing history, employment history and insurance claims.

The CFPB encourage consumers to check these specialty consumer reports for any errors.
