Why won’t my changes save?
For your security, certain 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 save on Credit Karma. This can happen if you’ve recently moved or changed your name because TransUnion may not have received your new information yet.
It can take the credit bureaus up 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 reflected on your credit reports or saving on Credit Karma, we recommend contacting TransUnion to make sure they have your updated information.

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.
