Credit Check FAQs

Why does Park Insurance want to use my credit information?

Studies have shown that a person’s credit history is actually a very good predictor of insurance claims.  Therefore, many insurance companies are now using credit scores as part of their overall analysis to determine eligibility for insurance discounts.

Am I required to consent to a credit check in order to buy my insurance?

No, credit check consent is entirely optional. You will not be refused insurance coverage if you decline a credit check.  However, we might not be able to provide you with the best price possible for your policy.

How much can I save on my insurance by consenting to a credit check?

As an independent insurance broker, we shop numerous insurance companies to provide you with the best price and coverage.  Each insurer will  have their own discount structure.  Talk to us today to find out how much you can save!

How often will the insurer access my credit information?

They will generally access your credit information annually when we process your renewal.

Can I withdraw my consent?

Yes. You may provide a written request to info@park.ca to withdraw your consent at any time.

Will this credit inquiry affect my credit rating?

No.  A credit inquiry for insurance purposes is considered a “soft” credit check and will not affect your credit rating.

How can I acquire a copy of my credit report?

There are two national credit bureaus in Canada: Equifax Canada and TransUnion Canada.  You can request a free copy of your credit report by mail by contacting one of these agencies.
