Excerpts from the article, “Contrary to Popular Belief,” by Thomas E Yssell:
"As the need to maintain a good credit score becomes increasingly important for seniors, they should be aware that reports may contain errors. After asking survey respondents to report on their financial expertise and household characteristics, we considered the information in their credit files. All participants in our study obtained their credit reports and FICO scores, then they reviewed them with the assistance of researchers. If consumers found items that they believed to be in error, they filed disputes with the CRAs to correct the issues.
The incidence of alleged errors among our study participants varied across age categories. Only 17.6 percent in the youngest age category found errors, whereas over 37 percent aged 51–60 found errors. More than a third of senior participants asserted that there were errors in their credit reports."
