How often does my credit score update?
Recently 4 items were removed from my Credit Report by 2 of the Credit Reporting Agencies, Equifax and Transunion. I was wondering how often does my credit score update? Is there an option on Credit Karma where I can click on to update my Credit Score since these items were removed?

Credit score update

Helpful to 7 out of 10 people

The most accurate credit scores would come from the credit agencies themselves. However to answer the scoring question for I was perplexed as well about this a few months ago:

CK is linked to Trans Union so you get a weekly score update for this agency only.

To check the scores: 

After logging into your account, check the left side of the homepage where the credit score number is. It should automatically start updating your score .

To get an idea of how you stand overall, click on "View all of my credit scores" link that is right beneath the credit score graph. You can get your vantage score which is an estimated score based on your average score from all 3 credit bureaus.

The score is months and at least a dozen payments across my cards behind on updating. What good does it do me to look at a score that almost never changes? This can't be a useful tool unless it reflects reality.

Update

After reviewing previous credit reports I find ck updated the status of my file every month which is when they will show a change in your account balance and payments made.. so credit score should reflexed that.
