Equifax Incorrect Deceased Indicator

Does your Equifax credit report say you’re dead?

This credit report error is strange, but it’s not uncommon—and it can affect your financial future. The team at Boss Law can fix this error—for free!

Have you been marked as deceased on your Equifax credit report? This common error affects thousands of American consumers each year—and it’s an error you can’t ignore. Being marked as dead on any of your credit reports can have the following consequences:

  • You could be denied an auto or personal loan, or a mortgage.
  • You could be denied new lines of credit.
  • Your credit cards could be closed, and insurance policies could be canceled.
  • You could be denied an apartment or a job.

An incorrect deceased indicator on your Equifax credit report is difficult to fix on your own. The credit bureaus are fielding thousands of disputes each day, and it can be nearly impossible to reach the right person at the right time. Instead of dealing with the credit bureaus yourself, rely on the team of credit dispute attorneys at Boss Law to take care of it all. We’ll fix an incorrect deceased indicator on your Equifax credit report and tirelessly pursue the compensation you deserve, if applicable. Best of all, our services are free!


Why Does My Equifax Credit Report Say I’m Dead?

There are many potential errors that can impact your credit report, but an incorrect deceased indicator is the strangest of them all. This error occurs when any or all the Big Three credit bureaus–Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion—receive word of your death from a creditor or lender. The credit bureaus may rely on this erroneous information to mark you as deceased on your credit report and fixing the error can feel next to impossible for the average consumer.

Correcting an incorrect deceased indicator on your Equifax credit report requires contacting the authorities at Equifax who can remove the error and supplying the right proof to show that the credit bureau was wrong. Instead of dealing with the time and hassle of endless back-and-forth with the credit bureaus, partner with Boss Law. Here’s how we fix this common, yet unusual, mistake:

  • Step One: Our lawyers use their expert-level knowledge of credit report errors to scan your credit report for all errors. These reports can be complex, and it’s challenging for the average consumer to understand how to format and include certain information. We’ll quickly spot mistakes on your credit report, ensuring your report is error-free at the end of the process.
  • Step Two: We gather and submit proof of your claim, including official notices from the Social Security Administration to the credit bureaus. Using our extensive experience and authority in disputing credit report errors with all three of the major credit bureaus, we send cease-and-desist letters to relevant parties, including an explanation statement that proves your claim. This often improves your credit score, elevating your financial standing as we correct errors.
  • Step Three: Consumers are protected under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, which means you may be entitled to financial compensation for an incorrect deceased indicator error. After the errors are corrected, we fight for your rights in court. You have the right to sue credit bureaus for reporting errors, and we ensure you get every penny for the damages you’ve incurred.
