-The University of Wisconsin-Extension “Check Your Free Credit Report: 2/2, 6/6, 10/10” campaign is a proud recipient of the 2017 Governor’s Financial Literacy Award, as selected by the Governor’s Council on Financial Literacy.

One of 18 award winners, UW-Extension is recognized as an organization which equips people with the tools they need to be financially secure and achieve their goals. The UW-Extension’s “Check Your Free Credit Report” campaign seeks to make the process of ordering a free credit report as easy as possible. Anyone can sign up to receive an email reminder from UW-Extension three times a year"on 2/2, 6/6, and 10/10"on the campaign’s website: While you can order all three reports at the same time, ordering one free report every four months provides the benefit of assuring that the information is up-to-date and accurate year round.

In addition to email reminders, the UW-Extension “2/2, 6/6, 10/10” website (, provides information and links for ordering, reading and understanding your free credit reports. The website has additional information on how long different types of credit information can stay on a report, and steps to take to increase your credit score. For more information on credit reports, contact Clark County UW-Extension Office 715-743-5121.
