If you buy single-pull reports via FICO Standard, there is no update since it's a one-time pull.

 

If you subscribe to the monthly service, ScoreWatch, then that subscription includes 2 EQ FICO reports per year, with the first being used up when you first subscribe. The other report can be used anytime during the year, or saved after a year. ScoreWatch will monitor your score though. It monitors it daily. If something changes on your EQ CR that triggers a credit alert like a new account or a new inquiry, then SW will alert you to that change and will automatically provide your new EQ FICO if your score changed. Some changes won't trigger an alert like a dropped account. SW will monitor your EQ FICO for changes every 7-10 days and if your new EQ FICO hit or surpassed your target score (found in your settings), then SW will provide your new score sans the reason behind the alert.

Re: fico updates

I think the OP may be asking in general how often a FICO score changes. It can change throughout the course of a day. As new data posts to your credit report, your score may or may not change. This includes things like payments you have made, new statements being cut by your lender, your accounts getting older, hard pull inquiries being placed on your file,....

FICO is a snapshot of a moment in time.

Goal Score: 750+, but shooting for the 800's
