Mistakenly Reported as Deceased Transunion

At some point in all our lives, we experience financial and credit troubles. One of the strangest and most unpleasant problems that you will come across at the earliest point in life is when your credit report shows that you are dead. Yes, it sounds incredible, but such cases do happen. Especially, if TransUnion erroneously reports you as deceased, it can really harm your credit history and financial well-being.

How It Could Happen:

  • Data Errors.
  • Errors in identity.
  • System Failure.

That said, the TransUnion credit bureau may mark your account with a death indicator, and this means an entry is created in your credit report stating your death.

Why Is This Important?

The wrong death mark can result in several problems:

  1. Denial of loans and mortgages.
  2. Problems with getting insurance.
  3. Difficulties getting employed, if the employer will verify your credit history.

According to research, every year 2 million Americans are wrongly declared deceased in their credit reports. Over 30 percent of this is because of errors made by credit bureaus like TransUnion.
