Why won’t my changes save?
For your security, updated personal information needs to be verified with TransUnion. If the information doesn’t match what TransUnion has on file for you, the changes won’t be saved on Credit Karma. This can happen if you’ve recently moved or changed your name because the credit bureaus may not have received your new information yet.
It can take the credit bureaus 30 to 45 days to update your credit information. You can see the current personal information TransUnion has for you by looking at your TransUnion Credit Report on Credit Karma. If it’s been longer than 45 days and your information still isn't saving on Credit Karma or reflected on your credit reports, we recommend contacting TransUnion to make sure your file with them is up to date.
I’m having trouble saving my address and I live in an apartment
If you live in an apartment and you’re having trouble updating your address, try including your apartment number or letter at the end of the street address line instead of using the Apartment line.
