I try to dissuade clients from fixation on their credit score as a measure of financial health. I’ve seen too many clients sitting in my office with winning credit scores and so much debt they can’t pay it off in this world or the next. I have to wonder what that score is measuring.
Atlanta bankruptcy lawyer Jonathan Ginsberg writes about the use of credit scores in the insurance industry. I have always found the alleged connection between one’s credit worthiness and one’s safety as a driver to be spurious. Let’s hope the Supreme Court sees this as a pernicious practice as well when it considers Geico v. Edo this term.
