Good credit can help you fight inflation and beat a recession. Here's how:

1. A good FICO score lowers your costs by reducing interest rates on loan and credit card payments

2. Good credit can help you get a higher-paying job. Many employers look at an applicant's credit to make a hiring decision.

3. Higher FICO scores mean you'll have a better shot at buying a home in a competitive market

4. A good FICO score can save you money on insurance premiums and deposits on utilities, phone plans, and more

5. With lower costs, you can save more in an emergency fund to pay for unexpected expenses
