Working at updating records from home
If you apply for a new credit card or job, this helps potential creditors or employers match your application to your credit report.
However, keep in mind that a credit report isn’t designed to include a complete history of the places you’ve lived and worked at.
Ask your creditors to make the changes as soon as you can.

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.
It’s generally wise to try and keep these things updated, but not doing so also won’t necessarily impact your credit health.
