Your History In Consumer Databases - How To Check

Saturday, January 8, 2011 - 6:58 AM
Most people are probably familiar with where you can get a free credit report once per year at the three major credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion). However, most are probably not familiar with the other consumer databases that are out there. Some of these include your banking history, medical history, insurance claims history and employment history. This My Money Blog post has a good review of these and how you can get free reports.

The MIB website also includes information on a  life insurance locator service that the industry uses.  It might be helpful to use (only costs $75) if you have a close relative that has passed and you are not sure you have captured all the available insurance policies that may have been issued in the last 14 years on their life.  These is a detailed application and only defined relatives/representatives are allowed to get the information.  An ORIGINAL death certificate (with raised seal) is also required as part of the request, which will be returned with the written report.
