I need to correct personal contact information that is listed in my credit report. Whom should I contact?
You should contact the credit reporting agency that produced the report (Equifax, TransUnion, or Experian) to dispute personal data such as:
- Your personal identifying information (such as, your name, date of birth, telephone number, address, or Social Security number).
- The identity of past or present employers.
- Information related to fraud alerts or active duty alerts for deployed servicemembers.
Get more information from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on how to correct credit report errors.
