I accidentally put in the wrong SSN (mistyped 1 digit), but a credit score came up. All other info looks correct and the score is correct. Can I correct my SSN?

Answer

Hello egrace10,

I'm sorry that you're having trouble with the credit score in Mint, I understand your confusion.  I'm not sure why the data would be correct if your social is inaccurate, but unfortunately there isn't any way to correct that now, or at least nothing you or I could do directly.  The only suggestion I can make is to reach out to support and they might be able to help, but that data is all handled by Equifax so it's not something we have direct control over.  Also once a score is added, it generally can't be removed and you can't sign up with the same info a 2nd time so you may be better off just leaving it as-is.  However if you'd like to look into it further, please use the Contact Mint form to open a ticket so our support team can further investigate and assist.  Alternatively, you can use our Chat service during available hours.

Regards,
Jesse :man:

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
