When your personal information changes, it is up to your creditors to report these changes to the credit agencies. You do, however, need to get in touch with them to let them know you address and social situation has changed. If you did inform your creditors, you might want to follow up with them again, to see why they failed to report the developments. It’s hard to say exactly how long you’ll have to wait for your information to be updated, but it could take about 30 to 45 days, as creditors generally only report once a month. Hope this helps!
Usually your name is spelled incorrectly is due to a creditors input. If you have pulled your credit thru www.annualcreditreport.com, on our report will be a reference number and a phone number directly to the bureau. Call them and give them the reference number for your report. Ask them to correct the spelling or which creditor made the error.
