Fed issues rule on credit score disclosure

WASHINGTON, July 6 (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Reserve issued a final rule on Wednesday requiring lenders to give potential borrowers more information about their credit rating if they are denied a loan or charged more because of a lower credit score.

The Dodd-Frank financial reform law enacted after the financial crisis of 2007-2009 required lenders to provide consumers with their credit score and factors affecting their score if lenders denied credit or charged a higher rate based on the credit score.
