Our marketing partners don’t review, approve or endorse our editorial content.It’s accurate to the best of our knowledge when it’s posted.But what about important services that you only use occasionally, like the post office and the dentist?On top of the stress that accompanies changing addresses, names or jobs, it’s smart to notify these companies as well to avoid any hiccups.Since you’ll need to wait for both your creditors and the bureaus to make their respective changes, practicing some patience might come in handy.It’s hard to say exactly how long you’ll have to wait, but since creditors generally only report once a month, it could take about 30 to 45 days for the changes to reflect.
Of course, the offers on our platform don't represent all financial products out there, but our goal is to show you as many great options as we can.We generally make money when you get a product (like a credit card or loan) through our platform, but we don’t let that cloud our editorial opinions.Learn more about how we keep this compensation from affecting our editorial views.Now, you might be asking yourself if you also need to reach out to the credit bureaus. You don’t need to contact the credit bureaus to update the personal information on your credit report.Instead, get in touch with your creditors and ask them to update your records with your new address, name or employer.Companies don’t see it that way, and it’s okay if it isn’t exhaustive.As always, monitoring your credit information is essential to your long-term credit health.Ask your creditors to make the changes as soon as you can.Editorial Note: Credit Karma receives compensation from third-party advertisers, but that doesn’t affect our editors' opinions.You will see this message only once Our Shared Growth Ambition is a very simple concept.
