Free Credit Bureau Reports

You have the right to a free credit report every 12 months from each of the credit bureaux – which effectively means you can get a free credit report from a different bureau every few months.

For more details on how to get hold of the various Bureaux see the Service Directory Section of Debtfree DIGI mag (available above).

  1. I have been unemployed for the past 2 years and have been unable to repay my debts. I have been trying to apply for jobs but have been unsuccessful because of my credit information. I need to know if i will qualify to have my credit information removed from the ITC so that i can get a job and actually continue paying all my debts?

    • As soon as the new National Credit Amendment Act 2014 kicks in it will be harder for people to draw a credit report for work positions that have nothing to do with money. That could happen in Oct or November (hopefully).
      In the mean time why not check out http://jobsearching.co.za/ as they have great advice on ways to find companies to work for and sell yourself better and improve your CV and interview techniques.

  2. I get very upset when employers as well as rental agencies (for housing) have issues with you when you apply for a job or accommodation. This is discrimination in all forms. We do pay our debt and its not to say we robbed companies… how are you suppose to survive if you cannot get employment?
