Credit Report Alert…. You’re Deceased

You’re not alone. Every year, many people are startled to find their credit reports mistakenly marked with a “deceased” status. This error can have far-reaching consequences, affecting everything from credit scores, credit opportunities to insurance policies.

The Real-World Impact

A deceased status on your credit report can block access to mortgages, bank accounts, and even hinder your ability to obtain a driver’s license. Credit card companies might revoke your cards, stop updating your credit information, or cancel your insurance. Crucially, FICO scores, which are vital for credit approval, cannot be generated for someone marked as deceased.

The Seriousness of a Misreported Death

A false “deceased” status is a significant issue, potentially upending your life. If you find yourself in this predicament, don’t hesitate to contact Jaffer & Associates for a free consultation at (888) 498-9533.

How Did I Get Reported as Deceased?

This error usually stems from the Social Security Administration (SSA) or a creditor. The SSA annually misreports about 15,000 people as deceased. Credit companies and lenders, too, can erroneously report a living person as deceased, especially in cases of joint accounts or when a family member passes away.

Sometimes its someone with a similar name as yours and other times its a complete mystery.
