Sometimes, strange errors appear in credit reports, and one of the most absurd is the status “im deceased.” This error can arise due to technical glitches in the functioning of credit bureaus, human errors, or identification mistakes. As a result of such an incorrect label, serious problems can arise, as deceased individuals are denied credits, mortgages, job opportunities, and rental accommodations.

In the event of this error, it is crucial to promptly request your credit report and contact the credit bureaus for correction. It’s possible to handle this process independently, and sometimes credit bureaus rectify the situation and bring you back to life. However, this is not always the case.

What to do if my credit report says I am deceased?

Most often, you will need the assistance of lawyers because there are many nuances to this error that need to be understood. Some of them include:

  1. Reflection in the Credit Report: The error with the “i’m deceased in my credit report” status will be visible in your credit report. This information influences your overall credit profile and can be taken into account by creditors when deciding on loans, advances, or other financial services. They may mistake you for a fraudster.
  2. Impact on Credit Score: Credit bureaus use information from your credit history to calculate your credit score. An error indicating that you have died will negatively impact your credit score; in fact, an error where the credit bureau thinks I’m dead completely resets your credit score, making it difficult to obtain loans on more favorable terms.
  3. Incomplete Recovery: Sometimes, when correcting the error independently, it may be fixed, but your transaction history and credit score may not be fully restored. This can negatively affect your life.
