A Webinar of Field Experiment Findings: Does Knowing Your FICO Score Change Financial Behavior? 

Please join the Center for Financial Security for our upcoming webinar where we will unveil findings from a new study examining how viewing one’s FICO Score shapes financial behavior. Researchers Rourke O'Brien, Abby Sussman, and Tatiana Homonoff will present findings from a multi-year randomized control trial (RCT) with over 400,000 Sallie Mae student loan borrowers designed to test the impact of viewing one’s FICO Score on a range of financial outcomes including repayment behavior. The researchers will be joined by discussants from Prosperity Now and the Aspen Institute who will offer insight into how the study’s findings may impact policy and programmatic efforts to improve financial decision-making and consumer financial well-being.
