How do I correct or dispute information on my Equifax credit report?
If you see information on your credit reports you believe is incomplete or inaccurate, a good first step is to contact the lender or creditor directly. This is especially helpful if the information involves your name or address. Updating your personal information with lenders and creditors can help ensure the information reported to the three nationwide credit bureaus—Equifax, Experian and TransUnion – is correct.
If you need to dispute information with the credit bureaus, the fastest way to do so is online. You’ll need to file a dispute separately with each credit bureau.
You can file a dispute on the following sites:
- Equifax: www.myequifax.com. New users will first need to create an account. Existing users can log in using their current credentials.
- Experian: www.experian.com
- TransUnion: www.transunion.com
